    Would someone be able to remote access my laptop.
    Afraid I may loose all my pcitures etc.


    1) Windows update fails over and over
    2) Action Center and Windows Defender wont turn on
    3) Then a friend said to partition my hard drive into 2 and move my pics, n poems to the new drive.
    (The new drive is almost full)
    4) Those files were not exactly moved but copied
    5) started to delete the older version files and realized not everything was moved
    6) I pushed some past date recovery
    7) Created an Admin, removed an admin
    8) SCF Scan here and there
    9) Finally Service component restructuring
    10) Now I can here my fan.


    I'm going to have to pay someone

    Sounds like you have been in a fight with a grizzly bear. I think everyone knows what it's like lol...

    First, there are some things I feel like you might want to consider thinking through before you go to tackling all of your problems. Just some questions:

    1. Do you have an installation disk for your version of Windows 7? You can burn one for free using this .iso for Windows 7 Home 64 bit here:

    http://msft.digitalrivercontent.net/win/X17-58997.iso

    This will give you a leg up on future problems, and it's a very good place to start if you don't have one already.

    2. Do you have any form of external storage? As many files as you have you would do very well to have a clear strategy for backing up your files. Keeping them on a partition is a solid idea, but they should still be backed up, because hard drives can fail mechanically (rather than on the disk surface) making data rescue extremely expensive or impossible. A USB backup drive is a big relief to have or one that is installed inside the PC, either way (or better yet both).

    3. See what you did, but could you explain a little bit more in detail what you are having trouble with at the present time? If you could create a short list of problems that might help.

    One of the full time techs will be around soon. Just some things to hopefully help you get your situation organized in your head a little bit. It can happen fast for things to go wrong with PCs...
