    Maybe try running "sfc /scannow" at an elevated command prompt...

    If you dont know how to obtain an elevated command prompt, click the Start button, then in the "Search/Run" bar, type "cmd". When "cmd.exe" appears above as a result, right click on it and select "Run as administrator". Once the black console window opens, type the above command and it [Enter]...let it run. It should check and repair your system files if they are corrupt.
