You could try running a system file check. It should do the trick, here's a link to another tutorial on how to do that if you haven't before :SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

This will check for and attempt to repair any corrupt system files.

Ran it twice before, no results :/ Is there a way to reset the registry to it's default? Using cmd prompt

Not unless you've backed up the registry first. Let me look around a bit..... I'm about out of ideas I'm afraid. You should run sfc/scannow three times in a row though, just in case. I am thinking a repair install will be your best bet.

Okay, thank you! Question, I found a external hard drive can that work if I put the ISO on it? Will I be able to repair windows using that?

I don't see why not but be aware that you will lose any and all data on it when you download the .iso. I'm still looking for some other way but having no luck yet. You really should back up your drive after you get it going again, just in case something like this happens again.

Hello! I have successfully put the iso on usb, I have one problem after trying to install windows, I select Upgrade>Then it says

"The computer started using the Windows installation disc. Remove the installation disc and restart you computer so that Windows starts normally. Then, insert the installation disc and restart the upgrade"

Tried to do what its telling me though, I don't get it? I'm currently using a USB Flash Drive.

Did you use the usb/dvd download tool ? Here's MS's answer, straight from the horses mouth so to speak.

Yeah I have. Also I'm doing this all from booting the USB, I cant actually get into windows. haven't slept for 2 day trying to fix this.
It all goes down to the program OldNewExplorer, according to it's readme when downloaded (OldNewExplorer 1.1.8 - StartIsBack+ - MSFN)

It seems to create a shell and replace windows files. my problem started occurring when I clicked install, and restarted my pc.

Quote:
THE OLDNEWEXPLORER FOR WINDOWS 8.1 / WINDOWS 8 (X86/X64)

Installation:
---------------
Extract files into directory which all users can access.
Run OldNewExplorerCfg.exe, click Install

Uninstallation:
---------------
Run OldNewExplorerCfg.exe, click Uninstall

Skinning Notes:
---------------
OldNewExplorer can override UIFILES from most files loaded by explorer.exe.
To take advantage of this, add UIFILES to your ShellStyle.dll named the following way:
Example:
SHELL32.DLL UIFILE 23 -> SHELLSTYLE.DLL SHELL32_UIFILE 23
EXPLORERFRAME.DLL UIFILE 20482 -> SHELLSTYLE.DLL EXPLORERFRAME_UIFILE 20482

Note that OldNewExplorer can load other types of resources loaded by DirectUI, for example TWINUI.DLL TILETEMPLATE
Overriding all resources may require explorer.exe restart.

Note that OldNewExplorer's style, details, statusbar settings override shellstyle resources.

WARNING: custom resource types are not loaded from ShellStyle.dll if it has MUI resource pair.
Merge it with mui file and remove MUI resource.

Turn debug on:
---------------
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Tihiy\OldNewExplorer]
"Debug"=dword:00000001

launch DbgView.exe (DebugView) to monitor which UIFILES are loaded
