Just tried ADW and it deleted some folders and stuff but didn't fix the issue.

Do you have the latest version of Audacity? (2.0.4)

Have you tried resetting Audacity?

Have you tried looking through the Audacity Forums?

I'm fairly sure it is a problem with Windows Explorer as it happens when trying to save a project file in Sony Vegas and when trying to open a photoshop document in Photoshop. (The Photoshop thing only makes it crash if I open a file from within Photoshop, if I go to Explorer and double-click the file it works fine.) Could reinstalling my OS fix the problem?

If you have the original Dell factory preinstall it's an inferior install which most tech enthusiasts will not run. I'd definitely Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 sticking closely with the tools and methods which assure a perfect install.

To get it cleanest first run the Dell Diagnostics Utility - How to Run the from boot to test hardware, see if it will boot and run. If so then I'd only keep the OEM Tools partition since Recovery won't run after a clean install anyway. Delete all other partitions during booted install, create new as you wish or just highlight the Unallocated Space and click Next to begin install.

When I backup my files before doing this do I need to backup everything or just what's in the user folder? Just a little worried about losing things since I've never re-installed an OS before.

Everything that needs to be remembered for backup is compiled in Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7.

The best way to organize your files to back up is to sort everything into the User folders and drag them to an external HD, another HD, or other storage. This is explained in detail in the tutorial.

Just as Greg says mate you only need that personal data docs pics etc save all that and do the clean install Greg quoted it is brilliant and you will not get all that crapware that one gets with prebuilts. Believe me you will see such a difference I did with both my Toshiba's and boy do they come with some crapware.

Used it on one and an OEM on the other but that was my choice at the time before I knew of he tutorial

I tried looking through the tutorial to be clear on one thing but I couldn't seem to find it anywhere. Is everything wiped from the computer when you clean re-install?

Yes, you should delete all partitions during the booted install to get it cleanest. This will wipe out everything.

The first steps in Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 deal with making sure you back up everything so you won't lose anything.
