(Sorry about that - comes of copy/pasting from various sources )

All of that looks OK as well - which means that I'm running out of ideas

Please run the following commands and post the results.

Yes! Thank you, that did it.
Thanks for all your research into this.

Now all I need is another free backup software that can do disk image, incremental, and scheduled backups. Any recommendations? (The built in Windows 7 backup has several problems for my situation.)

Thanks again!

Sorry - I tend to use Disk Images rather than anything else.
I know a lot of the guys here use Acronis, but have no personal experience with it.

Glad you got it fixed!

I was a longtime user of both Acronis and Macrium Reflect, but my biggest gripe was the time they took to make and restore an image. For the past few months I've been testing Rollback RX, and was impressed enough to purchase the full version. I use it as another layer of protection in case something happens and I need to restore my system, and the best feature is it takes less than 30 seconds to restore your complete OS!! You can download a trial version, to see how it works!!
