    Hi All,

    Im lost at what I can do here and need some advice (I'll keep it as brief as possible)

    I get the following error

    Click image for larger version

    When ever I try and access most things in my control panel (or i click the button and nothing loads)
    When I try and right mouse click on my desktop and personalise (the same thing happens)

    Basically most of my control panel is unusable.

    Now I have tried

    - Using sfc scannow
    = Completes but says it found corrupted files but was unable to fix them

    - Create a new user account profile
    = This was hard as I didn't have access to "User Accounts" as its one thing not working, how ever apon rebooting into save mode, going into MS Config and going into something there, I was able to make it an admin account (the new profile) how ever apon loading into it, I have the same problem

    - While in safe mode (minimal) same issue happens

    I have virus \ malware scanned to rule that out

    Ive gone to Microsofts support site and read multiple topics, but nothing has been able to fix it.

    While I have a genuine copy of Windows 8 (I am in no position to re-install windows \ refresh etc) as it would just take way to long to set everything back up (I know its probably the easiest way to wipe it all and start again) , but I wish to avoid this option at all possible costs.

    So throwing it out there, if anyone has anything to try (Eg re-pointing a registery key) or anything like that

    I would be greatly appreciated.

    Many thanks for your assistance

    Paul

    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth a go

    Then rebooting, the issue still exists.

    No doubt your registry is corrupted in more than one place IMHO. Have you used any registry cleaners lately? You may not end up here but I'm thinking this will be your final destination to recovery. Good luck.

    To followup on topguncp's suggestion (in his absence), I believe that tutorial is intended to re-register individual DLLs. So, if you know all of the DLL registry entries that are corrupted, it could be useful but it would have to be repeated for each known corrupted entry. Here's an example of how to use it for each individual DLL:

    I still think you would be better served by doing a repair install under these conditions (as previously suggested). In fact, if you read Brink's tutorial, you wouldn't lose much at all if you followed his detailed instruction correctly. Good luck.

    One more thing, you need to be in the directory where the dll resides to use my example above and the .exe in the message string is optional: regsvr /s cmutil.dll

    Now, if you intended to run it from elsewhere, you will have to identify the pathname to the target dll. Here's a good link to explain the options:
