I've been redirected here, as it seems my problems aren't related to virus' etc..
Anyway the problems I've been having are:
-no sound
-can't cut, copy and paste
-unable to turn off system restore
-minimizing a program doesn't go onto the task bar
-slow boot up

Any possible clues? :thumbsup: Thanks for your time!

As Billy O'Neil said, it could be a possible hard drive problem
You need to go to the support site of the hard drive manufacturer and download their diagnostic utility and use it to check for problems

Thanks, I can't actually install those tools, because windows installer doesn't seem to co-operate :thumbsup: Argh, frustration haha, thanks for the tips though. Says it can't be accessed at this time, try running not in safe mode.. I'm already in normal mode. Might just try a full re-install when I can be bothered.
