1) My laptop (sometimes just almost randomly) switches off it's WiFi adapter (the indicator light turns off) and i can't seem to turn it back on without restarting the whole PC, i have tried to fix it but i can't seem to figure out why it switches off.
2) Whilst starting my laptop the screen flickers to black, back to the desktop, then black again and so forth (It flickers about three times before working properly), i have worked out this is something to do with the driver (igfx.exe is displayed as having an error) i have updated my driver to the latest software already but it's still the same.
3) Everytime i open the "Documents" folder on my laptop it immediately crashes explorer.exe and it has to restart. Vista tells me that it has something to do with cyberlink powerproducer or something.. I don't know.
4) ///FIXED///**** I can't seem to get rid of Windows Live Messenger from my PC (I have removed all the registry keys and all the files from program files and numerous other files that are related to windows live messenger) but whenever i try and install a new copy; it always tells me i have it installed already. I want to re-install it but it says i already have it(When im absoulutely certain i don't) [FIXED]****

I think that's about it.. it would be very helpful if you could post solutions to ANY of these problems. Thank you :huh:


The laptop is an Acer Aspire 7720 gemstone, with an intel core 2 duo processor and 2 gigs of ram.

Edit #2:

Windows vista home premium 32-bit, forgot to mention sorry.

Since you have widespread problems, I recommend starting with a virus check and a chkdsk.

virus check: download malwarebytes from malwarebytes.org and run it

chkdsk: type 'chkdsk c: /r' into a command prompt and restart your computer. Be sure to note any bad sectors in the report.

I consider these two steps routine in computer repair, so lets see what happens afterwards.
