Vista Home Basic Service Pack 2 32bit 2 gig

Hello and thank you in advance for any help.

I have been encountering an extreme amount of errors/events, system crashes/dumps recently. There are so many, that I would like to just post my event log but I'm not sure how to do that.

Things that I have done recently before all of the errors, that may or may not be related:

I began having problems with my printer, so I uninstalled it and then tried to reinstall with the USB (which always worked for me in the past) but my computer doesn't recognize it (yet it beeps when I plug it in).

Updated to newer version of Avast, Windows updates


I noticed a lot of Bonjour in the the event viewer, so I tried to uninstall but the Windows installer quits. After several reboots, Bonjour is no longer in the add/remove programs list. I also uninstalled all Apple programs.

I would perform a system restore back to before the problem occurred.

Thank you, but I had no system restore points. Which is odd because there was a restore point two days ago, and then it was gone.

I also tried to restore to factory settings and got a Recovery Manager Error 100a, whatever that is.

I then ran a disk check at start up and it found some bad sectors. Not sure what else to do, I don't have any risky software or browsing, but I ran Avast, Super Anti-spyware, and Malwarebytes, and the only thing that came up was tracking cookies.

I'm no computer whiz, but it seems to me their is a conflict and it appears to have begun when I tried to reinstall my printer. I guess I will just keep searching for answers. Thanks anyway for the help :)

The hard drive is most likely failing!

:exclame: Backup important personal files to a physically separate device now! :exclame:

Minimise your use of the system after dong that, but please do the following so that I may get a look at the hard drive's S.M.A.R.T data to assess its current state.

Please Publish a Snapshot using Speccy, and post a link to it in this thread.

This is a convenient and accurate way of providing us with details of your computer specifications.
