How long have you had the laptop.

You could always reset it to factory settings if it came with W/8 installed but you would loose everything that you have downloaded.

Or refresh your PC by clicking Settings on the right and choose reset you would loose some of the programs if not all of them that you have already installed.

Or try running MalwareBytes just in case it is a virus problem.

Are you actually running the computer as administrator.

I would not even try any of the top 2 instructions and wait and see what others might suggest.

Have you tried running cmd in safe mode.

You have to msconfig.Click on Boot. Tick Safe Boot and also tick network.Apply Ok and reboot and it will open in safe mode.

When coming out of safe mode you have to revert back to normal settings or it will start in safe mode all of the time.

If it does not work in safe mode with networking go back and change the networking to minimal and see if it will work on that.

Try right clicking cmd and tick run as administrator and type in sfc /scannow then press enter on the keyboard.See if that fixes the problem.

Depending how long you have had the problem you could try a system restore to a time before the problem started.

In user accounts does it show you as being administrator and are you the sole user of the computer.

If it is the UAC settings that is giving you the problems switch it off as it can be a bit of a nuisance.

I am not sure what your problem is so best waiting for someone else to give you some better advice.
