Try creating another account and see if the problem persists. If not then you can just move everything into the new account and delete the old one.

Better still, if you have an image backup of your O/S.

I'm on W7 by the way, I don't know how this would work with W8.
Hello sicknero,

Thanks for helping. There is only one user account on my laptop and that is mine as administrator. As there is only one user account, the system does not even ask me to login as administrator for functions that need admin privileges, but simply goes ahead with those functions. I just checked some functions that need admin privileges and they are working fine as usual. So, it seems unlikely that my user account is corrupted.

I have to apologize again! I am also with Windows 7 Home Premium on an Acer 5250 laptop.
