Windows 8.1 want show contents of computer. See screenshot:

Clipboard02.jpg I must have an infection. Malwarebytes will not run. Pressing windows key brought up pcsettings and it only shows a blue screen with a big gear in the middle. I can't exit out. Do I need to run malwarebytes in safe mode? I have a host of problems. If I wait long enough some of the actions will run.

In the elevated command prompt type sfc /scannow to repair any corrupt system files.

In the control panel, indexing options, rebuild the index under Advanced.

Thanks....I sure would hate to lose my programs. System restore would not complete. Not sure i can access elevated prompt, but i will let you know if i can't.

I made no mention of system restore and no you will not lose your programs performing the steps I suggest.

To get an elevated command prompt, Windows Key + X and select Command Prompt (Admin)

Your suggestions worked just great. Now the one problem I have is that Chrome will not start. Will try to install it again.

No...sfc actually completed and rebooted showing no failures. I didn't stay with it to see it complete...however, i feel like it fixed a lot of corrupt files.

I am real pleased with win now. I am going to image it now that it is working. I created a lot ofrestore points, lol.

I had MyPC Backup to get rid of. It must have had 30 or more items in the registry that hitman pro found.
