Windows 7 Ultimate x64

Thanks to both of you for the replies.

I appreciate all the help all of you have given. I plan to format and reinstall as for me I think it will far easier to do. Then create an image.

Thanks again.

Just a way of saying that most Windows problems are not the result of virus infections.

Not helpful in fixing your problem, other than suggesting that you don't spend a lot of time looking for viruses that probably aren't present.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

Thanks to all.

Reinstall took no time at all, doing all of the updates however has taken many hours

2 images taken (clean install and then with all updates).

Job done.

Thanks again.
