After having upgraded to Windows 8, I realized, I couldn't get the Start menu plus the apps to respond. I tried using the Windows 8 troubleshooter yet this didn't worked too. I am now unable to perform any task with my PC since all programs have failed to run.I am using Windows 8.1 on Toshiba Satellite system 64. I'll very much appreciate any help you can offer on this issue
