Windows 7: ongoing 'not responding' issues

ongoing 'not responding' issues

I was researching an annoying slowness/stalling/not responding issue and came across this* thread on your forum which has a very similar error code list [Event Properties - Event 7026 Service Control Manager] as one of mine:

The following boot-start or system-start driver(s) failed to load:

The OP never responded as to what resulted, and I'm hoping to get some guidance on how to resolve this problem. I lost a file recently when it wouldn't save to a flash drive it had been kept on for quite some time, and don't want to risk other incidents. Not sure they're related, but the whole system's been sketchy lately.


* the following boot start or system start drivers failed to load

My first action would be to run a sfc/ scannow

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

If that does not help. follow-up with a startup/repair

Thanks for your response. I ran the sfc twice and found nothing. So far I haven't located the startup repair option or even a System Restore Menu [other than Control Panel's] on the HD or booting from the Asus Windows disk.
The only option from the book disk seems to be complete restoration to HD. No startup repair.

I finally got the menu to come up, ran the startup repair option, and get:
AutoChk Run = 0
Number of root causes = 1
on the C drive. No other error codes appear.

I'm going to try chkdsk /f/r

Chdsk found nothing.
Anyone have a suggestion?
This root causes = 1 report seems fairly common. Can someone advise?
