I do not have any install discs, but I just burned the rescue disc as mentioned in the malware forum.
I can't identify "what happened" the machine ran flawless for a few months, and ten days
ago it got borked.
Over the last ten days: A defrag failed, There have been a bunch of different BSOD with various
error codes, MS Updates gave a "there is a file missing to do updates" message, MSE
repeatedly crashed and failed to update with "connection failed" message, there were "app error"
messages with MSE, Firefox began crashing regularly, I ran speccy an app that reports system
configuration and it began reporting back something like "class not available" mmm that's about it.
These have all been intermittent, I'm currently logged on typing this....waiting for the next occurrence.
I tried sfc /scannow, but it asked for a install disc, which I don't have. Now that I've
burned the rescue I'm think I might be able to run it now.
I ran chkdsk /r and it reported finding and fixing two errors.
I guess, I'll wait until the next specific symptom occurs and write the specific information
here. Other than that please advise me what steps I can take, or what info I should
report back here, to make a diagnosis happen.
