    Hi Clixty

    Thanks for the tip, but when I right click on my C drive and try to click on any links (for example "Advanced System Settings" I get the incredibly annoying "Windows can not access C:"error message

    Im going to refresh Windows now and post results here.

    Bummer, guess luck's not on your side...

    I am using a new user account now, nothing to reinstall (program or app) which is quite good.

    All the best to you!
