Windows 7: Programs disappear

13 Dec 2010   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit
Programs disappear

I really don't understand this, but I have a few applications open, and then all the sudden, everything starts to slowly close by itself. I didn't click anything accidentally or press a logoff button. Every application on my computer closes, then my computer locks up for a couple seconds, then half of my applications come back. Why is this? I have Windows 7 64-bit Ultimate.

Perform a SFC Scan

1. Click Start, click All Programs, click Accessories, right-click Command Prompt, and then click Run as administrator. If you are prompted for an administrator password or for a confirmation, type the password, or click Allow

2. Type the following command, and then press ENTER:

sfc /scannow

A message will appear stating that 'The system scan will begin'. Be patient because the scan may take some time

3. If any files require a replace SFC will replace them. You may be asked to insert your Windows 7 DVD for this process to continue

4. If everything is okay you should, after the scan, see the following message "Windows resource protection did not find any integrity violations"

5. After the scan has completed, close the command prompt window, restart the computer and check.
