Have you tried safe mode, and then use last successful loading, or system restore????

Was thinking of system restore but have done several updates recently and want to consider if there is a direct solution before trial and error of how far to go back with system restore.

With regarding updates, I assume you mean Windows updates. You can [as you must know] update again after a system restore!.

After weeks of tinkering,searching forums I have stumbled upon solution accidentally.

I installed a similar programme to Prism Hud called Performance Monitor 3x. When I finished installing a windows prompt box popped up with option to enable 'view manager' I clicked 'enable' and surprisingly up popped Prism Hud fully working to my disbelief, fully working! Now why couuln't Windows 7 have self diagnosed this istead of opening a windows box saying looking for solution but never finding one?
