I posted in this forum last week (http://windows7forums.com/windows-7-support/36050-need-help-windows-back-up.html#post133866),Why did you have to do the repair in the first place?
Were you getting blue screens, error massages, etc.
Was this a \"clean\" install or an upgrade.
Why is it bad? I didn't upgrade from win-xp nor vista.Actually, the upgrade is bad, but..............
Go to Start > Run, and type msconfig, click the Startup tab and uncheck everything except your anti-virus scanner, Spyware detector, and personal firewall if you have one.
How many icons do you have on your desktop?
Could you better explain that sentence?Why is it bad? I didn't upgrade from win-XP nor vista.
I already had Windows 7 64bit installed when I did the upgrade. I did it with the help of this post: Repair Install - Windows 7 ForumsCould you better explain that sentence?
I've given the reasons why the upgrade route is not the best method to go in my previous post.
With only 5 icons on the desktop, I don't understand why that would be happening.
I believe it's due to Rocket Dock as that sucks up the most resources.
I'm surprised that FireFox is a memory hog!Right-click on the taskbar and choose Start Task Manager
Drag the windows to the right so we can see the whole view. Now click on the memory column until it shows which programs are using the most amount of memory.
Now perform a ALT - PrtScr. paste that into Paint and upload the file here using the Manage attachments feature.
I'll update now.That is very, very high for Firefox.
I'll attach my screen shot as well.
Sorry, I don't use Microsoft Backup, so I can;t help you out there.
This is only on start up,correct?
As you can see I clicked on the memory column to sort from largest to the least amount. Is thee any program down below that we can;t see that;s takng more memory.
Do you have the latest version of Firefox.............3.6
If not, you should upgrade.
A clean install will take me about a week. With all the softwares and games and settings I have for windows... I would rather poke my eye with a needle.With that problem as well.I would opt for the "clean" install.
We could be here for days trying to figure this out when a "clean" install would take about 2 hours top to reload your 3rd party applications that's depending on How many you have.
If sfc /scannow does not fx the error, your system files are screwed up.
Yes, i agree with that completely that is why (even if windows 7 backup won't work the usual way, I "offline" my D:\ drive with drive management (Reason for this is windows 7 tries to back it up as well and Me don't have that much room on my E:\ drive to store both an image of C:\ and D:\ combined... silly windows -=8^) once it's offline I select drive backup, but instead of running the backup part, i look to the left, and "create system image" which goes just fine as always, even when full drive backup fails.. Anyway images of your crucial system drive are vital in getting back "MOST" of what You had, so get in the habit of creating them every so often, depending on how much You do and install on the PC they are a must to recover from, anyway yeah that's How i stay sane in this wild malware infested PC world of ours... PEACE OUT!A clean install will take me about a week. With all the softwares and games and settings I have for windows... I would rather poke my eye with a needle.
