It sounds like something was corrupted, or your sstem reverted back to an older system restore point. Aside from the games and Chrome not working, how is the system running otherwise?

well after rebooting and using cc cleaner i got google crome re installed but the problem with everything back to default seems to have something to do with when i set up my computer i moved my documents and downloads to another drive using the location tab. Windows now seems to went back to the to the C: drive to save documents and now the location tab is missing to move it back this is driving me crazy
