I am running windows 7 home premium with a 5.9 experience score.
All was going well, loving win 7 etc, until I restored my pc to an earlier date after experiencing problems with itunes 10 (damn you apple).
After restoration, most of the PC still runs as normal (very quick) but certain functions seem to have developed problems, for example...
- The recycling bin simply takes an age to to delete even a few small files.
- Windows takes another age to discover the contents of my 'My Book' Western Digital external hard drive.
- When I try to change the personalisation features, switch to another theme etc, it freezes.
- Various other system freezes that require task manager quits.
I have tried to restore to a few different points in time, but to no effect.
Can anyone please help me with this as it driving me nuts!!
Ps - on a related issue, could I un-install my WD external drive and try to re-install without affecting the data stored on it?
I know you will say back it up first, but there is about 300GB on there and my computer would take a couple of years to transfer that at the mo!!!
