    Hi,

    I have just had a blue screen and using samsung restore I did a basic restore of windows 7, It's seems to have fixed Windows but now when I try to use internet explorer it opens with the tool bars and I can use Google tool bar to search but the main screen is blank white.

    Additionally I thought it maybe a virus that caused the issue but when I have tried to update AVG the interface is not displaying properly and any buttons are completely blank and do not show any text.

    Thirdly any text in any program is in the same font (times new roman i think).

    I can connect to the internet fine with firefox but even with this the font is an issue and when trying to update avg using firefox the buttons on download process are blank

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    Try using System Restore to go back to a date before all this happened.

    What do mean by a "basic restore" of Windows 7. Did you restore Windows 7 to its factory fresh condition ?

    Thanks for reply, by basic restore I meant with the Samsung software/ interface.
    After reading a bit more and trying sfc /SCANNOW which resulted in. On repairable errors I did an upgrade install with the disc that came with the machine which has fixed the problem and retained my files and programs
