Hi everyone. My best friend recommended this forum to me, she said you guys really helped her out so hopefully ill have the same luck. Fingers crossed.
I have a three year old Sony Vaio laptop that came with Windows 7 Home Premium on it. Since I got it, whenever Windows does an automatic update the laptop is super slow for a few days. Locks up, won't shut down, is generally unusable. Then all of a sudden it's fine. I've gotten used to this, but last week, after it updated it wasn't at all fine.
Programs that automatically opened on startup, if you tried to click on one, the screen turned black. It might then return to a normal screen with just the application (Spotify for instance) being black. You can't click on or open anything or close it. And if you try to shut down the computer, that just freezes on the logging off screen. After four days it came on like normal, and I was using it and in the middle of updating a blog it froze again and stopped letting me do anything, I've turned it on once since then and it's still not letting me do anything.
So I obviously have no idea what's wrong or how to fix it. I've looked and googled and can't find anything online that might help me. Thanks in advance for any help you can give me.
