My Windows 7 puter has gone belly up in the last week. I can surf the internet for a while. If I leave for a while it is basically locked up. If I attempt to run even the simplest program or start messing around in "my computer" the thing locks up and just spins that little icon. I have to hard reboot the thing if that happens. I am getting ready to reload windows but I really need to back up some pics and video but i cannot keep teh thing running long enough to transfer it to an external HDD or to my notebook via homeshare? Obviously the thing works in safe mode but I am not really sure what I am figuring out in safe mode. It's probably just "one of those things" but I figured I would ask. Thanks, MF Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
