Do you know what windows updated? Safe mode uses only the necesities to run windows so your core functions are in tact. I just hate reinstalling windows >.<
I totally agree - but I hate installing Windows on mechanical HDs even more - it's like an all day chore when you do. SSDs cut the time of installing Windows by like 1/3.
Although I talked to my IT guy about it - he thinks it's one of the RAM modules. The only bad thing is my RAM is way out of warranty, would replacements be in order? Maybe instead of 6 x 2GB I move to 3 x 4GB?
