Windows 8 File Explorer Acting Strange

All my foto file thumbs have dissapeared and Even normal files are difficults to open. I have issue with all directories containing mkv files, the explorer hangs every time it tries to browse the content, even on some rather old mkv files. that's removing the battery for 5 to 10 minutes... And I meant running SFC from the DVD, not from safe boot (safe mode) https://www.winhelp.us/images/windows/repair.w8/w81.startuprepair01.jpg So, pretty much resetting only worked under safe boot. have a peek at this web-site

I would sure like to know if it is.

So that's another possible cause for the issues you have experienced. they don't care. Sfc scan detected corrupt files it could not repair. And if you have reason to beleieve the PSU may be failing depending on it's age, quality, etc.

Decided to do one, I have an urgent project at school that requires my video editing powers currently disabled by this virus, and can't waste time with viruses.

so I don't know what did it. then why not create a new partition (say D: drive) and install a new copy of windows 8, and move your programs from C to D, with the Application mover?.. That just makes me not want to do anything even more, scared that something is broken and I'll make it even more worse.
