Windows 7: A curly one

Ok Jack well if the thing crashes again I will give your way a go because I am still getting crashes / going very slow / having to reboot when it hangs etc and the pics are still being attached as those flowers on my desktop.

Updates I am sure are the problem and I do one at a time and the restore if things go south. Currently I have this lot (in pic) backed up and am frightened of even looking at them to be honest. In update history there is nothing only because I am sick of restoring the machine all the time

I might try Callenders fix again so I can see what those desktop pics are actuality.

Oh the board disk mate I try not to use as it contains a lot of rubbish and things that have caused issues in the past.

I do have MBAM full version on pestering me to buy it and I think I might uninstall it because I know Kaspersky doesn't like it that much.

Just as by the by I find MBAM and SAS pick up heaps of stuff on my 10 machines than they ever do on the 7 machines and I have Kaspersky on all my gear - seen anything like that with your machines??

I mean MBAM usually nothing on the 7's yet 250-350 malwares on 10 and about the same for SAS

Another thought.

For testing; on another clean install use MSE and not KIS. Then get your updates and see how things go.
On my two systems MSE and Malwarebytes get along very well.

Hmm actually Jack I think I must have downloaded the wrong ISO form that download site as per why he disk is MBR and not GPT.

It would explain the crashing and no updates I suppose and trying to get an ISO from either Microsoft or the Heidoc site is proving almost impossible . Microsoft keep giving me an error processing it and to try later when I give them my boxed DVD key code.

So I think I am in for yet another install and do it from the original DVD OEM I bought I know this will mean a Ben Hur of updating but what choice do I have??

I am so sick of Microsoft right now I could gladly burn the computers in the back yard.
