    Cannot start any program suddenly on Windows 10


    I just upgrade to Windows 10 from Windows 8.1 two days ago. I installed Microsoft Office Home & Student 2013 last night. Office seems working fine. However, this morning I cannot start any program, such as Adobe Reader and Google Chrome. No error message. I even cannot uninstall the chrome from Control Panel!

    Nothing changed. Only one thing I notice is that Microsoft Visual C++ 2005, 2008, 2010 Redistributables have been added automatically.

    Does any one has had the experience before? What is the problem?

    We will need more info to help you with this. Do you get an error message when you try to start the program? Does the program window just flash then disappear? Or does nothing happen at all? Also knowing the make/model of your computer or the build info if you build it yourself will help as well. Remember, there is no such thing as too much info when trying to fix a computer.

    Hi ArazelEternal, Thank you for your response.

    There was no error message as I already said in my initial post. The computer is a Dell computer I purchased 2 years ago. After upgrade to Windows 10, it has worked fine for 2 days. It has Intel i5-4460S CPU at 2.90 GHz; 8 GB RAM

    Even after installation of Microsoft Office Home & student 2013, every program work fine until this morning.
