Basically you have a corrupt install. Tiresome I know but I would reinstall without carrying over any of my previous programs. Make sure you back-up all your docs to an external drive/DVD before you do this.

I had exactly the same problem. I initially tried to 'Refresh' Windows 8, with no luck, so had to back-up my files and undertake a complete re-install. This was relatively painless, but time consuming.
