help or advice neede please! did mu normal updates of my pc and was asked to install update software for that well known os system, this i did then a verification which surprised me as in the past i had already verified using their genuine product button to confirm my os was genuine, prior to this my pc worked fine copied dvds ok and cds all was rosy, I then found i couldnt copy cds the disc copier kinda froze not for long but i knew something wasnt right , the cds played ok but had blanks with breaks in the sound playback these cds i copied were home ones which were fine no faults, i then found out my pc was freezing up , ie crashed norton ghost refused to work properley with my external hardrive saying backup images were not correct norton ones , so eventually i restored pc from an old norton ghost image some 3 months old , ok my pc works but not as it did , the cds are useless! no viruses spyware or anything else i can find all scas clear any ideas I have a few but i dont think the company concerned would like them without naming names i think you can guess who i mean though i cant of course proove it any help please? i thought of ditching windows for linspire doing a dual boot system
