So I tried running the elevated command prompt sfc /scannow. The results where "Windows Recourse Protection did not find any integrity violations." Is their anything else I can try if I remove CCleaner and restore the system to the day he changed things it would be a year ago almost from what I can see
I tried right clicking on the shortcut for Windows Media Centre and making sure I was running it as an admin through the "advanced..." button under the shortcut tab. That didn't work either, not giving up!
