I hope one of the informative members here can help me before I lose hair.
I have a home built W7 Home premium (OEM) with i72600 and MSI 5450, two internal 1TB Barracudas in RAID1. 3 video monitor setup using motherboard card for one, and the MSI for the other two. Program folders and audio to external drive. It is used 'only' for audio production with Cubase. I am connected to internet only for licensing updates and sending file via Yousendit (Hightail). I use another computer for downloading things from others.
I do not have this system setup for automatic updates for obvious reasons. Should I update Windows manually?
Suddenly, it takes way longer to boot Windows, and even after it boots, it takes an extra minute to update the icons on the screen. Actually, all the icons on the Home Screen come up at first, but then they seem to reload. Like something is updating.
Other strange issues happen when I have a Cubase crash, that Task Manager wont even open. Just a black screen.
I have direct connection to switcher directly from modem (Comcast fastest), yet my uploads disconnect via Yousendit. This doesn't happen on the other PC that is connected via that same switcher from the same input.
Any ideas? If there is more information that I could provide to give some insight, I will obviously provide it.
Any insight would be greatly appreciated! Hell, I would send some payment for an answer. I really do not wish to reinstall allof my software. Last time took me 2 days....
