Wow, I have had a run of problems with my three machines running Win 7. I bought the "family pack" years ago.

 

First my Notebook (MSI dual core Intell)  wouldn't boot past the windows logo screen. I got real frustrated and went out and bought a new notebook on sale at Best Buy with Win 8 (hated it) and have since returned it. I finally got wise enough to start the machine in SAFE MODE and "go to the last known good boot-up point". That seemed to recover this machine with a little more touch-up.

 

Then my Asus netbook (PC1015PE) went a little stupid and is still acting crazy. It seems to get fragmented just sitting there and it takes forever to do a disk defrag. Took it on a cruise last week and sometimes I had to restart it several times a day.

 

Now my Asus K8V Deluxe desktop machine crashed and I have had to reinstall Win 7 which is now running 169 updates. It made a file called "Windows.old" that I sure hope I can somehow use to recover my settings and documents.

 

Any ideas about all of this anyone?

 

My HTC cell phone also had to be replaced after getting into a start/restart dew-loop.

 

what a couple of weeks.

I don't think you're some on malicious attack because based on the symptoms that you've stated, you're having a boot problem on your first netbook and disk problem on your Asus netbook. Most nebooks are pre-installed with Windows OEMs packed with tons of bloatware that makes your system hangs a lot.

Netbooks are really slow which is prone to lags and the startup time is extremely tedious. I once have a samsung netbook with an Atom processor which I ended up replacing Windows with a light Linux distro (ZorinOS Lite). Fast forward, the performance really improved and I was able to surf with several tabs without lags and it only eats small resources as per RAM and cpu usage.

Those all appear to be normal situations that computer users experience at some time...the fact that 3 different systems had 3 different problems does not seem extraordinary to me.
