    Sounds you like you have more going on there. You might see if doing a system restore using a restore point dated before you had all of these issues may be able to help.

    cannot be done


    not possible as microsoft removed the option to do a restore with windows .1 only option is to recover but to do this you need a bootable windows 8 disk and Asus ( like a lot of system manufacturers ) only supply a rceovery partition and this will not work with recover function , thanks microsoft for this rubbish system , as if windows 8 was noty bad enough the update is worse.

    Maybe


    None of this seems to work so : I have removed /uninstalled all other browsers on my system except IE11 so it must be the default browser but everything is still the same , unable to get a program to run from within another program . and it looks like no fix ,whentime permits at the weekend I will try to recover back to Windows 8.0 in the vane hope that I may get something back Fingers crossed

    I wasn't talking about doing a factory system recovery (reset). Instead a system restore (system protection) with a restore point. See the link below for more details to see if that may be an available option for you.
