Just to add Bill's great suggestion - if that doesn't work, try doing SFC /Scannow Command....
SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Also you can use one of the many free replacements such as

But the other ones usually have a strong point. It's worth having a few on the machine.

'Shut Down' Missing in Task Manager?
Hopefully a simple (not dumb) question: Where, exactly, is the 'Shut Down' button/option in Task Manager? Any logic in removing the option for every Windows user's most frequently used 'Task'? And, yes I know there's still Ctl+Alt+Delete. This became a non-trivial issue when opening Media...
