Itis probably a software conflict. Does it do the same thing when you boot into safe mode (F8)?

Of course you dont have a back up from before the problem, right?

Do you have the win 7 dvd, to do a repair install?

Can we get the system specs?

Does it have a factory restore partition?

Can you be more accurate? Are you actually highlighting something?

> Try a SFC, Option 2

Reboot on completion.


SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

If SFC could not fix something, then run the command again to see if it may be able to the next time.
Sometimes it may take running the sfc /scannow command 3 or more times to completely fix everything that it's able to.

If not, then you can attempt to run a System Restore using a restore point dated before the problem occurred.
You may need to repeat doing a System Restore until you find a older restore point that may work.

We need your computer specifications including manufacturer.

If you haven't got a Windows 7 DVD or a factory restore disc (s) you need to create them before you do anything else. Your computer manual should explain how to do it.

You can also create a system repair disc, as this tutorial explains: System Repair Disc - Create

You also need to be more specific as to to exactly what the problem is. Are you trying to copy and paste documents, web pages or files of any sort?
