Windows 7: Hard drive cloned, installed. Win7 Home Prem.

22 Sep 2013   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium
Hard drive cloned, installed. Win7 Home Prem.

have a win7 Asus laptop. all software is legit and legal. the original primary 320Gig Seagate HD was going bad. Bought a newer, lager Toshiba 1Tb to replace it.

Used Acronis Disk Director Home 11 to clone primary drive to the new HD. switched them, powered up and everything seemed to be ok.

Then when I open Office Outlook 2007 the images for the emails don't show,

when I save an image from online the name use to show up automatically in the "save as" as it was online but now I have to type is in manually.

checked and now windows update wont run but Microsoft security essentials does,

cannot check for updates as it is not running, it ask me to reboot but same. click on fix windows update in the control panel....or try run maintenance task and get the error message "a problem is preventing troubleshooter from running"
same on most of these type task.

yahoo email and websites don't store the login any more and have to enter manually each time
also when I try to download attachments the save, save as etc. appears but when I click it nothing happens

I know if I had moved everything to a different pc the license would have issues but this is not what happed here. Everything is legit as bought except I had to replace the HD.

need help and don't understand since everything was good to go before, and nothing is pirated on my laptop. also passwords for websites don't get remembered or ask to remember any longer. Thanks

Welcome to SF. I had a look around and this link could be a good read. I've had much better image successes with another clone program but I'm sure the Acronis is more then capable as well. The program I use is linked below:
