And while I do have everything backed up and in theory I could do a clean install, I'd like to figure out whats wrong. I like to learn as I go along, so If I could get to the bottom of this problem it'd be great.
I'm currently running off my Windows 7 partition - which has amazing compatibility, ran left 4 dead flawlessly.
I don't think it's a virus but at the same time I'm looking for a scanner that'll scan my Vista 64 partition.
It seems more likely that it's a windows bug of some sort. I have a registry backup, from ERUNT, from a few months ago on my external hdd but I couldn't figure out how to get it to merge with my existing registry. I couldn't get ERUNT started either (because of the symptom listed above).
So trying to figure it out, and am still looking at finding a fix and whats wrong, but posted here on the off chance somebody knows whats up.
