Open a cmd window and type sfc /scannow
If it finds problems (fix or no fix) reboot and run again. Repeat 3 times rebooting after each run.
I did that and i noticed it resetted my reg hacks for my custom computer icons. My custom Right click desktop power menu. My custom message on my log in screen and picture. And it looks like the file i edited to add my own icons in is also gone. I'll have to see if it fixed my problem. As it put everything back to normal windows. So it might have fixed it. I'll have to see.

Did you run it 3 times, rebooting after each scan?

Find what time USB drive was ejected
Hi, I've misplaced my USB drive and I'm almost positive I left it in one of my school's computers, but it's no longer there. If I can find out when the USB drive was ejected, I might be able to track it down. Does anyone know if this is possible? Thanks, Tony
