"Uninstall A Program" Utility will not open

Hi guys,

For some reason my "Uninstall a Program" utility (under control panel) will not open. There is absolutely no effect when I click to open it.

For context I was trying to uninstall a game called Battlefield 3 via the games DRM - Origin. and it wasn't responding - which is when I tried the Windows uninstaller utility and found this issue.

These are the things I have already tried:

1. Clean boot mode - problem persists.

2. System File Checker - no issues were found. problem persists.

3. Malwarebytes scan - malware was detected and removed. problem persists.

4. Full Avast anti-virus scan. Nothing detected. problem persists.

Any ideas?

go into safemode and see if it opens. you can always to a system restore to a previously saved restore point prior to when the problem started.
