I have a serious problem and I hope that you can help me. I can't copy/paste/drag/drop folders. IE7 flashes on and off when opened. My AV software, BullGuard can't be updated. I can't run my installed MalwareBytes program. Also my services don't work right. I have trouble running System Restore. I can't get into Safe Mode. I can't run my Windows Installer service. I can't display my Network Places connection icons. I don't think that I can install or uninstall programs OK. I was stupid and should have been more careful but I did run RegCure and had it fix what was free. I am NOT sure what exactly happened but I think that chkdsk ran since my FAT32 partition was questionable. I am NOT sure what chkdsk did to my C:\ drive. I should have been MORE careful when I saw that my PC had several BSODs. I should have copied down their stop codes. Should I just salvage what I can and reformat my drive? Please help me. I am at a loss. Thanks in advance stteng P.S. Please be as detailed in your instructions as possible since I am NOT MS certified. My knowledge comes from exposure and my mistakes. P.P.S. Please forgive me if I should have read other people's threads and also any fixed threads.
