Earlier this week, my brother cloned my 750 GB Seagate hard drive to a new Western Digital 1TB hard drive. At first I thought everything was fine. However, I noticed a couple of things
1) Windows Update no longer works. When I try to run Windows update, I get a message "Windows Update cannot currently check for updates because the service is not running. You may have to restart your computer." I checked and the service is running.
2) I noticed internet explorer no longer saves settings.from when I login to web sties. For example, every time I visit Facebook, I have to re-login. Prior to the clone, I did not have to do this. Chrome works just fine.
I did some googling and I see others have run into this issue. I'm hoping that you may have as well.
My system specs are below.
