I decided to start a different topic because an earlier issue became something else. Earlier I was experiencing problems with thumbnails being mixed up and a system restore was suggested.

Before the system restore I also followed a guide which detailed specific Windows updates to uninstall (something to do with tracking software).

It's worth mentioning that I've been able to restart normally after uninstalling certain tracking-related things.

After attempting a system restore I got stuck on a black screen with an active cursor. I can't get into safe mode and nothing in the repair options seems to be helping. I don't have a Windows 7 CD.

Please close this topic. I somehow managed to get back into my computer after a long repair scan (that didn't work before).
