I'm gonna go ahead and start uninstall every windows 7 update, until i find which one caused it
The system restore options are too recent nothing is before december :/ so i can't use it
Going to start uninstalling all the ones with:
Update for Microsoft Windows
Update for Windows 7 x64-based Systems
And if none of them do it, then I'll start with the Security Updates... this sure is going to take me a whole long time... I know it would be faster to simply back up the current data & format re-install and not do any updates... but I would prefer the system having the latest updates & finding the exact one that caused it - or the other only option.. going to xpEdited by sendblink23 - 12/20/10 at 12:32pm
