If you will post back a screenshot of your maximized full Disk Mgmt drive map with listings, we can check if there are any problems with the setup on disk. Otherwise you can check the logs and use other diagnostic resources following these troubleshooting steps
Attached is a screenshot, I think that is what you requested..if not let me know.
There have been no problems with the HTPC except this one, and it has been running fine. It has booted and run without problems twice since the Startup Repair foofaraw. I checked the event logs and nothing caught my eye.
Looks like it was an electronic brain fart. I.e.
something stubbed it toe and a hysterical Windows called paramedics, the Red Cross and SWAT.
Is there anyway to stop it if it happens again? Or change this default behavior?
This is a new (March '11) computer on new hardware only has avast installed on it, it's not used to browse the net, just Netflix streaming. I don't want to spend a lot of time on it especially to chase MS phantasms. There's nothing on the box so reinstalling it would be easier than tackling a big troubleshooting task.
Thanks for taking the time to reply.
