DevsFan72, welcome to my hell
.........I too, have recently had the same problems, and whether it was due to a hard drive failure or a virus remains to be seen. However, I have spent five days now trying to find a fix for this, and am resorting to one last attempt as we speak. Rather than have you jumping through hoops for nothing, let me see if this fix works and I'll post one way or another by this evening. One tip: DO NOT turn off your system restore just yet.
