  1. Try restoring windows to a previous state. Tried the Windows button on KB ?
    Click New Task on Task Manager-Applications, type: cmd.exe
    cd c:\windows\system32\restore
    This will activate the restore program.
    If not working try the same for cmd.exe then type: sfc /scannow
    This will scan for missing or damaged windows files, have install disk in drive.
  2. Or you can run install disk and choose add/change additional components.
    Make sure to uncheck then check the relevant components.
