    Control panel sub categories won’t open
    I have a strange problem where any subcategory links in control panel won’t seem to open at all when clicked on. Everything else opens fine. For example, clicking on "System and Security" or "Network and Internet" works fine (the main categories) but if I try to click on "un-install a program" or "add a device" for example (the small text sub category links) they don’t respond with anything.
    I have tried Google searching for a solution but can’t seem to find anything of use.
    Has anyone experienced this problem before and know of a solution?
    Thanks in advance for your help

    Try this, hit the windows button+R then type "cmd" and hit enter. In the command window type "sfc /scannow" and let it run. Type in commands without quotes.
