Windows 7: Almost no response from windows 7..angry wife

Windows 7 Professional SP1 64-bit

[Comment Removed]

Masplin, try the clean boot as rich suggested and see what happens. The software you speak of should work, and if not, we will get them working in the next phase of troubleshooting.

Windows 7 64 bit

Hi gregrocker

Is this once I have done a clean boot? Seems certain services have to be started in order to have sound or install printers.

thanks Mike

Windows 7 64 bit

While I have been away for a few days my wife has stil lbeen runnig in safe mode with just Outlook and firefox plus internet and network connections. She tells me she keeps loosing the abilty to see her email i.e. the text disappears, but she can see the outline of the boxes etc. Closing Outlook and reopneing fixes the problem for about a day then it does it again. Seems like there is still a problem even within safe mode. Guess this means no point going to clean boot stage?

Will run ant-malware meantime

Can you boot to the desktop to try the steps I gave you?

If so, a Repair Install would have already fixed it most likely. Back up your files first.

What is the upgrade cost of wife 2.0?
just kidding...
You went to device manager and everything was fine.
Did anyone in this thread suggest looking at Event Manager?

Windows 7 64 bit

Hi Greg. sorry being dim, but what do you mena by "boot to desktop"? I can boot up normally or in safe mode and it starts off fine i.e. get to the desk top. In regular mode just slowly keels over despite only saying its using 30-40% of RAM. In safe mode seems to be performing better, but now getting these display issues with Outlook. Is your suggestion:

1. Normal boot?
2. reinstall sound driver
3. reinstall printer driver
4. Run sfc /scannow as Administrator

Failing that do a repair install.

IMO, with that attitude, no wonder you are having problems. I am female and have built and overclocked my own desktops since 486 days. I then taught two of my sisters and they now maintain, repair and upgrade my brother-in-law's PCs. I am sure I am not the only woman on this forum.

To stay on topic: You may be better off starting from scratch.
