This laptop is old (Windows 7) and I am trying to transfer all of our pictures and documents off of it so that I can wipe it and start all over. It continually hangs when transferring files, and runs incredibly slow, if at all. I am at my wits end with trying everything I know to do. It will not boot in safe mode, it hangs when you try to do that as well. I have run regedit and disabled a bunch of start-up programs, but this doesn't appear to have helped anything. Anyone care to assist in troubleshooting this big paperweight? I really want to get all of my pictures of my kids off this machine before I wipe it clean.
Thanks in advance.
