Odd behavior after using CCleaner

I decided to run a clean for the first time in a while. It analysed and I hit fix or run or whatever. The fist thing was to remove Temporary Internet explorer files.

Upon starting it just sat at 0% and after a while the program started not responding. So I restarted my Computer and assumed all was good. But then after the restart I started noticing weird behavior, for example Internet explorer not opening, Chrome (My default) having lost all my passwords/ Windows 8.1 start screen tiles missing all their icons and many other weird things. I tried a restore to a few days earlier and this hasn't fixed the issue. I tried booting in safe mode and things like the star screen tiles appear. 


(Current Issue)

I've tried removing Malware (Malwarebytes & Trend Micro security) and It seems to have helped. I'd say half fixed the problem. But my current issue is with Google chrome not remembering passwords so every time I restart my computer it wants me to sign back into Google And also Adobe Lightroom not recognizing my GPU? Also other strange behavior such as dropbox not opening and Adobe products not searching for new updates.


Any help is much appreciated
