I tried the sfc command prompt and it fixed some issues, ran chkdisc and fixed whatever but I'm still having a persistent issue with explorer.exe (or some other file I got no clue) causing my programs to "not responding" over and over again.
Each system restore I have done past SP2 installation has caused the same issue to arise for me after putting the files back. I don't want to have to resort to do a reinstall for the 5th time!!! for the same thing to happen - I've saved all System Restore, each time even the manual system restore I do to let myself know when I put the programs in, any ideas?
Also my PC came with uhm I think it's called OEM? it's a HP comp with a recovery thing on my computer, no disc that came with SP1 so windows update has to download a bunch of updates, so I got a ?.
# Question: Is it normal that once it's up to date with the update that when I run a registry program it has over 1800!! errors even CCleaner has the same amount when running that, is that normal? omg.
# Last Question: If i make a recovery disc from the HP thing it offers to create, Can i reformat the HD (I'm assuming here that I can truly get a clean install due to having to reinstall 5 times!!! already) then running the disc + updates along with diskcheck and sfc?
Any help would be greatly appreciated, sorry for long post, I'm pretty angry at the moment as I've never had this happen to me even after having been using my pc for the past 3 years up till last week when i decided to reinstall... now i regret doing it...
