Thought I posted this on 7Forums already, I usually come here first...

I'm beginning to think that either my computer hates me or the System Restore Partition provided by Toshiba is corrupt. This will be the third or fourth time, I think, that I am reinstalling Windows.

The solutions posted by a user on MS Answers were sporadic in function. It took several reboots to get them to begin to work. They did not solve the problem, though. (If you're interested:

Let me try this, then:

Wow! Holy....How in the....did nobody at MS Answers solve this, never mind how quickly you did it, I simply mean solve it at all! The first download was the one:

NOTE: This is the default setting.
A) Click on the Download button below to download the file below.
So, umm, thanks again. Would you mind if I referenced this on the other Windows forums I've asked for a resolution on?
