    Users link under PC settings dissappeared!


    Hello everyone! Just faced a problem where my "users" link under PC settings have just completely dissapeared... Also when i got to: "Control Panel\User Accounts and Family Safety\User Accounts" i see the links:
    1. Change your account type
    2. Manage another account
    3. Change user account control settings

    but if i click on one of these links - nothing happens. I am logged as administrator and using Win8 64bit. Thanks in advance

    Same problem here!!! Windows 8 Pro (italian)

    Click image for larger version

    I have an user account connected with hotmail.

    Even enabling and using the users "Administrator", i can't access to Users settings, i can't access to the UAC setting... like someone have disabled it.

    I have some problem in services too (descriptions are gone!)
