I would turn SR on for G, then move the slider way down toward the left, then turn it back off.

As for F, I thought System Restore didn't affect data, but only system files? Or is SR used for...

Very cool. I suppose the next thing is to try a different optical drive.

If you buy a used OEM system you get Windows essentially for free. You might get a distressed machine where the MB is still good for very cheap, then soup it up yourself. Of course, shipping on a...

The next thing I would try is to pull the optical drives. Windows is having a problem accessing them, and perhaps one of them is causing the hangs. Worth a try.

If that doesn't change anything,...

If you pull the new hard drive is everything back to OK again? The only thing I can think of is a BIOS flash. Make sure all the HD connections are clean and good. Try reseating the RAM.

There was a little ambiguity in the first post, but that is what I thought you meant, and that you were referring to reprogramming the Sleep button rather than tying in with the Sleep function. I...

Hiding filename extensions by default will go down as the worst decision ever by any software maker, despite MS having done its best to provide some serious runners-up. It is an absolute disaster.

Another way to do that is simply to go to MSCONFIG and specify Safe Mode on the boot tab. Then reboot and let Windows go there automatically.

But you should be able to nuke that file in standard...

Sorry I didn't see this thread earlier. Working on the hard drive is the wrong thing to do at this point. Instead you should be copying your data from it. Working on it may be making it worse. Either...

My guess is most of those 389 hits are pretty innocuous, but you never know. MB is the gold standard of AM progs, it's just that SB is stronger in a couple of particular areas, including cookies. I...

That's the official spybot site, so any of those mirrors should be good. The ones on top, though, seem to have advertising you would have to navigate. The local ones in the middle group are ad-free....

I suppose this could be the work of tracking cookies which at one point gathered your email address. I would do a thorough scan with a good AM such as Malwarebytes or even Panda. In a case like this...

That's the reason SFC is better from the WinRE disk, when possible. This driver thing sounds weird, unless you have some exotic HD housing the C partition. When you ran the chkdsk, did you use the /r...

Ok. The next thing I would do is a diagnostic boot or boot into Safe Mode, and see how it performs there. Diagnostic boot is set by going to Start / Run (Winkey-r) and typing in MSCONFIG. Then I...

Those files should be backed up anyway, right? If so, back them up to another drive, then you'll be free to experiment with the install. Have you done a full reboot yet?

I haven't looked at your file, but the first thing I would do is copy over all your data to a safe place. Then I would do a chkdsk /r scan of the drive.
