    Troubles with Windows 7 update

    Running Windows 7 Pro, it went though an update on Tuesday, done a reboot, but it never shut down, even left it over night. Done a restart, it wouldn't go back into windows, so went into safe mode, it then started scanning for duff files. Eventually got into safemode, done a restore to previous date. Still not going into windows, done another scan disk. Well eventually got it into windows, but nothing works correctly. Outlook would load, but after being in it for 2 mins, the screen would go dull, I could open other apps like Dreamweaver, but anything Microsoft related like work and Outlook would freeze after a couple of mins.
    A full backup was done 2 days prior to the problem, so went to restore, but backup incomplete. All data like circuit boards etc is backed separately every day, so they are intact, it was the complete HDD image every month that was damaged.
    However in Jan 2014, I swapped out my HDD for an SSD one. So I have not put that drive back in, and copied other all my data files, and not just installing the applications I had on there before.
    Perhaps the SSD is failing. Perhaps, where it didn't shut down full it was in my bag, it just got hotter and hotter.

    Anyway, its Friday now and I think its almost back to working. Once I'm happy I will re image the drive back to the SSD, and keep this drive as a handy backup again.

    This is the reason I've not been on the forum much over the last couple of days.

    I have to agree. After working with computers since 1986 I finally had enough dealing with viruses, malware, incompatible hardware made by the cheapest supplier, and dealing with bug-ridden Microsoft software.
    I finally bit the bullet, as far as the home computers were concerned, and bought Apple. It just works, and now my evenings are spent doing things I want to using IT, not fixing IT.
