Windows 7: Some things stopped working

03 Oct 2009   #1

Win7 64
Some things stopped working


I don't know why, but some things are not working on my Windows anymore.
Windows Update (link and popup notification)
Unninstal a program in Control Panel
Find and fix problems in Control Panel
and so on

There is not also any error message, I just click on them and nothing happens.

Any ideas?

Vista and Win 7 have done that to me, it is frustrating because, at least for me, these kind of problems come and go and I can't reproduce when need it.

Sorry, not really an answer for you, just a little more salt to the wound I guess

All I can say is try to set a restore point, go back to a couple or few days to see if that solves your problem.

Perhaps, restarting your PC with the CD in the drive and using Repair might help getting everything back? Now, being said this, be careful because you may end up making a completely new install and loose your data in the process or make a new windows folder (kinda like a dual booting) and still have the problem in the OS you now use.

Again, sorry, it seems I am giving you more frustrations than answers, hopefully, someone with more skills will chime in soon.

I guess I'll have to run Repair since Restore isn't working either. lol

Thanks for the suggestion.

You could also try to run the system file checker which can repair some system files.

From an administrative command prompt: copy/paste or type:

sfc /scannow

and wait a few minutes for it to complete. It should tell you when it's done if it found and repaired any corrupt files.
