    Is there anything above SP1? Well I did reconnect my Wireless Adapter, but it still persisted. An infection would explain, but I ran the computer through several Anti-Viruses, used Malware byte, the whole lot and they couldn't pick anything up, for corruption, that seems plausible, as I had to basically Re-install Windows 7, and would explain the sudden appearance of it all.

    In all honesty my suspicion was entirely with Java, it probably isn't connected at all, I just don't trust the thing..

    Nivagely, since you got things working by essentially reinstalling Win7,that says to me it's not a hardware issue on either with your Ethernet adapter, router,modem,or ISP updates, but some file(s) in Windows itself that somehow was being corrupted/changed. The fact that it worked for a bit after rebooting, but now works for a much longer period of time tells me it's not a heat related problem, but a software issue, like some default parameter on reboot was being changed. I assume you don't have a full version of Win7 which is why you installed Vista first.

    I had Home Premium, *Official*, But couldn't really go through the hassle of backing up about 1 TB of data, so I downgraded onto Vista then Reupgraded to Windows 7 Ultimate using a spare CD I was given, Doing all of this seemed to have fixed the problem, I can only assume it was software doing this, but that is as far as I know, for some reason my Old version decided to botch up randomly,

    What, no backup of your data!. I sincerely hope that you back up the really important stuff like pics,home movies, to an external drive and burn the pics to good quality DVD's.

    That's nothing compared to the hassle of trying to recover data from a failed drive. No drive lasts forever and when it fails maybe you can recover your data, maybe you can't.

    Well literally everything on it right now is replaceable, its just the sheer amount isn't worth having to buy another HDD At the moment when I have no money as of yet to get anything, everything important is on multiple cloud storage and on a laptop that's got a good 7 years with its HDD, (Its outlasted 3 Laptops and I'm expecting it to outlast this one...)

    Besides, steam takes up a nice big chunk, about 200 Gb worth, and with steam I wouldn't know how to go about with a backup.

    You implied your data wasn't backed up. Maybe I misunderstood.

    You don't really have to back up your Steam games since you can always download them fresh from Steam. As for any saved games on your local hard drive, if you wanted to save them and if you had a place to store them, you just go to the saved games folder of the particular game and copy them. I only bring this up as a point of information. You handle it as you see fit, of course.

    Ahh sorry for that I'll clarify, a small amount is backed up, about 600 MB worth of work, everything else just would take a week to replace like 3DS Max, UDK editor, custom made Game engines, ECT due to bad Speed in Wales
