    Hello and welcome. Are your Windows System and applications all licensed software installed to a cleanly formatted hard drive?

    I'd go with patcooke. Your problems seem too severe to be caused by a single incident. If I were you, I would zero-format the disk, by using gParted, GParted -- Download, or something, and then re-install everything.

    Yes, my windows is original.I've booted it from the original disc.
    Opera , mozilla firefox , adobe reader, xampp are all open source.So they are genuine.

    Then I would reboot from the Windows install disk and run a complete reformat of the drive before doing a complete reinstall. The install one package at a time and ensure that it is working before installing another. That way you can identify at what stage the problem occurs if you have any more errors.

    Hi

    I agree, something fundamental is wrong with your system.
    I've run all of the software you mentioned and never had any problem.

    Just starting from scratch seems like the best way to go.

    If I was just the browsers there might be a way to fix it but Adobe Photoshop CS6 shouldn't be a problem on Windows 7.

    It does sounds a bit suspect - given the symptoms I think you need to fully reformat, clean install then test as I suggested. If you still have a problem then I'd check out your Windows install disk - did you activate your Windows install?

    Sometimes the reason for the problem remains disguised, like Livingstone did, but then Stanley found him. And end was well, all was well.

    Hooray!
