I have an HP laptop I got last November that runs Windows 7. About a month after I got it I wasn't able to copy files onto my desktop or into folders from peripherals such as external hard drives or camera cards. I could still download from the internet or grab attachments from e-mails.

The other day I noticed I couldn't even move anything between two outside pieces of hardware (I can't move pictures from my camera onto my external hard drive). That blue waiting circle appears and says that the program is not responding. When I exit out of the window I get a window that tells me Windows Explorer encountered an error and was forced to close.

Did I change a setting accidentally or is this something far more serious?
