I had the same problem last week with my satellite which is about the same age as yours. I took it to a tech, who started it in safe mode. When I restarted it in normal mode, everything showed up again. Also my 6to4adapter uninstalled itself.. this seems to be a common problem, but again, starting it up in safe mode, restarting it in normal mode seemed to help. My windows updated before all that happened, and started installing a new one when it was connected to the internet again later that day, so I don't know if it was a software glitch or not.
