Windows 7: some programs don't start after some time the windows is logged on

Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit
some programs don't start after some time the windows is logged on

I have windows 7 ultimate 64-bit on an ASUS k45-vd laptop.
there were no problems, until about a week that when I log in to windows, everything works well, but after sometime some programs don't start!

LIKE: Calculator (from startmenu) => gives error: The item you selected is unavailable. It might have been moved...

OR: windows wifi troubleshoot => windows cannot find '%windows%\system32\msdt.exe' make sure you typed the name correctly and try again.

CINEMA 4D => The program can't start because libmmd.dll missing from your computer!

as I said before, there is no problem when I just log in, but after a while the problems show up.

The latest programs I installed: AfterEffects CC, Visual Studio 2015, CINEMA 4D R16

Thanks for your help

Try a System Restore to a prior date the issue started - System Restore
You can also try a clean startup - Troubleshoot Application Conflicts by Performing a Clean Startup
