Cannot open Lenovo Settings, or change my Lock Picture in PC Settings

2015-08-17, 3:38 AM

Hi guys, I've had this problem for around 4-5 monthes but have never really gotten around to looking for a solution. Anyways, here is part 1 of my dilema. Lenovo Settings will not open. In fact, it seems to have disappeared completely, along with several "default" apps, such as Paint and Calculator. However, I am able to see them, yet cannot open them directly. View From the Home ButtonOddly enough, I can still open paint, though I have to do so via right clicking on a picture. Clearly they exist, but whenever I click on them and attempt to open them directly, nothing happens.


Another issue I have is that the lock screen is stuck on one picture. I cannot change this picture, instead, when I try to change it, the loading wheel spins indefinately like so.


If there is any solution to either of these issues please contact me as soon as you can. As you can imagine it's a little bit annoying having battery saver mode stuck on so I can't charge more than 60% for road trips.


EDIT: I should also note that this is a Y50-70 I am using
