    From the looks of it here there is a 10gb recovery partition, so shouldn't it be possible to boot into that but how?!

    The disc is a driver disc that came with the computer, thought earlier that it might contain something but nope :/

    Any way of running Defraggler, (portable), maybe?
    I'm just wondering if that 10GB 'slice' is blocking your data.

    I can't install Subinacl it gives this error after hanging for like 5-10 minutes trying to install

    Click image for larger version

    i wanna add this though when i started getting these problems i had just uninstalled something called postgreSQL
    and now whenever i boot into desktop i'm logged off my anti virus (Bullguard) i have to type in login everytime.
    And my other startup application Spotify, skype some background drivers for logitech and stuff it takes them +5 minutes from boot to open, if they ever actually open its random now. they used to open within 10 secs of booting into desktop

    ... sounds more and more like you may have picked up a 'bug' somewhere!
