The system forced itself to revert to a restore point and right now everything except one legacy program is working fine. I can live with that one fussy app so, for now, I'm not rocking any boats.
There's one program that got removed the by the restore. It's called "Fences" and is supposed to be compatible so I'll give it another try AFTER setting a new point.
Anyway, for now I'm calling this done. I know we didn't actually solve it but I'm content to let it ride for now. I have made a record the the thread and will have options if/when it happens again.
SevenForums is just a great place to go when trouble strikes. So meanwhile, many, many thanks to you very fine helpers. Elves?

Certainly glad to hear you're stable.
By the way, for future reference, if you run sfc per the tutorial posted by koolkat the command window you run it in will not disappear as the command completes. If it found problems you'll have to dig further, but if it comes up clean you'll see it in the window.
I'm trying to scan my system to find out why I keep getting the infamous "has stopped working" message. I'll post that separately. But my problem with the scan is that the window comes up and the scan runs all the way to 100% and then the window closes. Actually I can only see it to 99% because of that automatic closing.
From all I've read, I'm supposed to get information from that window even if it doesn't find any problems.
So not *it* seems to be a problem.
Suggestions, as always, most welcome and received with thanks.
