Windows 7: Libraries won't open, locked out of Users. KB2590550 fixed it.

Libraries won't open, locked out of Users. KB2590550 fixed it.

So I'm doing my usual surfing on the internet and suddenly my Libraries refuse to open or be accessible. I can't access Documents, Pictures, Videos, & I can't open My Computer without right-clicking on the desktop icon. Now I'm getting an action alert. Windows Security Service Center has stopped working. (My computer went down immediately & rebooted into a new user with a black background, but I couldn't create any new folders in that users' libraries.)

Now I'm basically locked out of my computer but for this unknown User I rebooted into. I can't even make a new folder in this User's Library.

Windows 7 and error “Could not connect to the System Event Notification Service”

Installing KB2590550 now.

Rebooted OK, Google Chrome remembered what I typed in this post before my computer crashed. Yay Chrome!

Sounds like a bug,
What security suite do you have installed ?

Avast! If a Windows hotfix can fix this catastrophic problem, it's gotta be a Microsoft problem. It might even be a Genuine problem!

Hello BrokeIC,

If you have not already, you might see if you may be able to do a system restore at boot using a restore point (if available) dated before this happened may help.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Libraries do not stop working for no reason.
Somewhere along the line corruption has occurred.
Downloaded any third party back up utilities lately/ ccleaner...................?
