So I recently had an incredibly improbable issue with my computer - in the midst of a recent power outage, my computer started updating and ran out of power halfway through, which appears to have done a real number on what it was updating. It now takes over ten minutes to boot up to the login screen, several features of Windows 7 are disabled (such as transparent window borders) and its sound is spotty and buggy at best (youtube sound is entirely absent, for instance).

I'm almost positive I screwed up my drivers somehow, but I have no idea how to go about fixing them. Do I just update them all individually and wait out the absurdly slow boot-up every time, or is there some utility I can use to repair them en masse?

If anyone else has heard of anything like this before or has a way to fix it, please respond. This computer's only a year old and I don't want to have to format it already.

EDIT: I should mention that restoring to a System Restore point was my first thought, but it turns out I hadn't set that service up until now. Feeling like a genius. :/
