No mate nothing that sticks out anyway.

Now you did mention in your first post you did a clean install and I am wondering just how you did that?

Personally when I clean install I always clean or wipe the drive first to make sure any remnants of the previous install are gone. Doing it by just putting in the Microsoft media DVD or stick and installing means it just formats the drive and to me that is not good enough but I am pedantic about these things, but is has saved me from having problems.

The install media just what have you got? was just some OEM copy you bought or did you just factory default the machine?

The instillation disk set I have is a genuine "Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium" single disk set.

I hope that Helps.

So I am also going to assume it is an OEM copy that you have bought? If that is correct then all well and good.

The other thing I mentioned about cleaning the drive did you do that or just insert the Microsoft media and let it do it's own thing? I am only keeping on about this because in the past I have done exactly the same thing and only to find I still had issues. Cleaning the drive is like putting a brand new drive in the machine and letting the Windows install set it up. I know it is tedious but in the long run I find it saves a lot of grief (and re installs).

Now just a thought for you - if your budget would run to it what about trying a say 500GB SSD for the OS and use the drive in the machine as an external drive? I am again assuming you like to have a larger drive like the 1TB you have - but my philosophy is that a large drive loses a lot of data if it goes south and 1TB can hold a lot of data, so I always use a 500GB or 750GB SSD as max for my machines and store data as images on external drives.

But the choice is yours and I will be interested in how you installed from the media first.

Ok well the updates can be very erratic - at least I find them so and more so if the system is having issues.

Now I am wondering if we should not do a test on that drive now in fact it would do no harm and will show that there is or not an actual problem with it.

So can you run this and let us know the outcome please.

Yes well it is showing some system files problems there mate and I am now thinking maybe it could be down to a hard drive being out of whack - physically so run the Seatools mate and lets see what it comes up with.

Now if things start to look like there may well be a problems with the drive then best back up any data now.
