Does this still happen in Safe Mode with Networking?

yes I can recreate it in safe mode with networking. Also, I was thinking, it's strange that had this same Windows 7 version from the OEM working perfectly for four weeks before having to make the reinstall after developing problems a week ago.

Can you run Memtest as a bootable pre-built .iso here: Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool and then try Seagate Seatools to look at your HDD. Some hardware may be failing.

Could it be a windows update that caused this? Another problem (possibly unrelated) is that I experienced Flash video crashes in multiple browsers after the latest Flash update was released (10.3.181). Could a Flash update install these errors?

Possibly, but I'd rule out hardware first.

A flash update cannot cause this much damage. You don't have much to lose really, so it is best if you would re-install a vanilla Windows 7. Depending on your case, it could take longer to find the issue, rather than solving it immediately by re-installing a vanilla Windows 7.

Uh cmd, hardware has absolutely nothing to do with him getting installer errors. His system played Flash videos fine before, and now it's not working top-notch, but thats a software, not hardware issue.

Keet-scott, do you have a plain vanilla copy of Windows 7?

Hi cmd - unfortunately due to the issue I have previously described I cannot download the software to carry out your suggestions. Seagate file is corrupt when I try to run and the Memtest will not mount.
