Try running command prompt as admin, and type:
Code:
sfc /scannow
Also, a repair install might be in order.

I will go try that and see what comes up. Thanks!

Update!: The scan said I had some corrupt files that were not able to be fixed. I guess that's a bad thing! I will use this guide here to try and fix. I'll post my results after!

Update 2!: Took awhile to reinstall Windows but now everything is a-ok with Disk Management! Thank you!

Dweezy, good to hear it is fixed.

I would have recommended a Repair install over a full reinstall, but that works too.

I performed an 'upgrade' install and everything worked out alright. Thanks
