Then today, after the computer kept freezing and I shut it off and turned it back on again, I got an error message that said something like "(something) Microsoft has stopped responding" while I was doing typical things like browsing the internet and listening to music. I had no idea what it was talking about because everything was running smoothly at that point. I closed the error message then the Help and Support thing came up and said that there was something wrong with the hard disk ( ) and suggested solutions like restarting the computer (which I did) and checking the hard disk for errors. I did that but nothing happened. The computer just restarted like normal.
I don't have the slightest clue about what could be wrong. Is the hard disk really messed up? It doesn't seem to be. I never downloaded anything yesterday. Didn't go on any unsafe sites. If I did, my anti-virus would have and should have told me so. I did restore the computer three times yesterday because one of my games was messed up and I wanted to see if I could make it work again like it previously did. I think in doing so I may have reversed some Windows updates. Come to think, last night when I went back on Firefox, the updater kept forcing me to restart the computer to install the updates that I guess I had reversed. I checked Problem Reports and Solutions and I'm seeing that there is something called Superfetch that could have caused this. It seems relevant enough. But I have no idea what Superfetch is and I don't know if that even is what's causing all of this. I am currently running the computer in Safe Mode and nothing is happening as of yet. Please help, anyone. I don't want to have to take this relatively new computer to a shop or anything. Please and thanks in advance for any help.
