no display name under SLID KEY

dear friends

im using windows 8 pro and having an unusual problem. there are no power options displayed like balance, high performance and power saver. i also found that im unable to copy any files to c drive and install any programs from an external drives like hdd or usb stick. i checked out the forums and many advises to take ownership of the disk/folder/file by right click-properties-security tab-advanced button-click change ownership, but when i did this a message box popped up saying "cant open access control editor. the activation requires a display name to be present under the SLID key". im using a genuine windows 8 pro retail with kaspersky antivirus. i reformatted about ten times. it used to work normally for a couple of days by following the steps given above to take owneship but after that the message started to pop out. please help.

    Sorry, but you got me wrong. Using CCleaner is the most mentioned reason that CAUSES this problem. I couldn't find a solution, how to fix it. It seams to be a problem with an incomplete registry, but i have no idea what causes that.
  4. yes i remember that i first noticed this problem after cleaning with ccleaner. i had a doubt in mind so i dint install ccleaner in the last 3 or 4 reformatting. but the problem arises after a few days.
