1) My Windows Help has not been "connected" to the website in I don't know when. This is a very minor annoyance, has only been frustrating a time or two. The first time I had the problem I googled around a bit and tried some things. Nothing worked and the problem wasn't super serious so I just went on with life. But now that I have problem #2 I wonder if they are at all connected.
2) I noticed my Windows clock is now lagging behind by three or four minutes. I thought that was strange since it's supposed to be syncing online somehow so I started googling that. Tried everything I found (unregistering/reregistering in command prompt, stopping/restarting it, changing servers multiple times). Every time it says "An error occurred while Windows was syncing with ____". Again a minor problem since I could use other clocks and I could also manually reset the clock if I wanted but an irritation nonetheless since it doesn't work like it should.
3) The most annoying problem that interferes the most with actual use of my computer is a BSOD I've gotten about five times in the last month. This doesn't sound like much but when you are in the middle of a work project and it suddenly crashes that is not cool! The error says BUGCODE_USB_DRIVER "Stop: 0x000000FE (0x00000008, 0x00000006, 0x00000005, 0x87DBC310). The interesting thing to note here is there is never anything plugged into my USB port when this error occurs and it does not seem to happen right when I've performed a specific operation. It just randomly does it. I don't think I recently installed anything besides Windows updates when it started happening and I've tried a system restore back to the day before it started happening but it did happen again.
Any help is very much appreciated!!
