So this morning after firing up the computer and freezing while trying to open a compressed file with Winrar. Like total hard lock freezing.
I rebooted and could not get past the Windows loading screen...
So I broke out a spare SSD drive that I ment to upgrade my OS drive to a couple of months ago...
And I'm doing a fresh install of the OS.
Windows 7 64bit Home Premium - Nothing fancy.
Old Drive was a Crucial M400 64GB, replacement is a PNY XLR8 128GB (about the same speed on read and write).
And I'm going ahead and doing a complete reinstall - vs - restore from a backup.
Some icon's are lost and bookmarks have to be recreated.
Fucking Windows Update showed over 150 primary updates with another 50 or so secondary updates (thankfully I set it to manual pick and choose, cause I don't like Bing and some of other shit LittleLimp push's as an update).
Fresh Install of all software on the OS Drive.
So Windows, Antivirus, System Drivers, Firefox, Paint.net, Gimp, Pot Media Player 64, etc.
Note: Steam is installed on a second SSD (240GB PNY XLR8 currently) so all my games are un affected.
All of Unified UNP stuff (testing material, and what not) are located on a third 500GB spindle drive (along with the zip files of all the mods I use). So no problems there either.
Hell I don't even keep my movie or music stored on the OS drive. I only use it for the OS and base programs... which reminds me I gotta go download 7zip.
