Also, you can run the HP Recovery by pressing F11 during boot up, after the BIOS has loaded, and before Windows starts to load. This will take you to the Recovery Console, with options, without the interference of the OS. There must be a Recovery Partition existing on your hard drive for this to work. If you did not delete it yourself you are OK.

Restoring the laptop with HP Recovery will set everything back to the way it was when you first took it out of the box. So be sure you want to start all over before doing this procedure. You may want to try the suggestions by Brianzion before going for this "nuclear option".

And please consider that "Turn Automatic Updates Off" does not mean the same thing as "Never Do Any Updates". It just means to change the Windows Update settings to notify you when updates are available, but don't download or install the updates (automatically).

It is best, IMHO, to install updates manually and deliberately. I've helped people who trashed their system by shutting off the computer while updates where going on unknown in the background.

Me: "Didn't you see a warning message?
DA: "I think so. I saw something. But I was going to be late for class!!"

Windows 7 Home Premium x64

I am not sure what happened...but all the problems went away. The computer runs perfect again. I made the repair disc...never actually used it. The computer restarted..and everything was fixed! Go figure....

Thanks for all your inputs!

IMHO you should make a repair disk if every thing is working fine. Go to Start and type repair it will be at the top.
