    I'm having a couple of problems with Windows 7 Home Premium x64. The first one is an ongoing issue that has existed since I first purchased this laptop, a Portege R705-P35 (HDD replaced with 256GB Torqx SSD). Approximately 1-2 weeks following a rollback with System Restore, or a full OS restore from an Acronis True Image 2010 archive, Windows Explorer will suddenly stop responding during an attempt to copy & paste a file(s) from the desktop to another folder; after Explorer restarts, cut & paste succeeds on the second attempt. It doesn't start happening constantly after the first incidence (it is totally at random), but it does increase in frequency.

    The second issue is newer, having existed for about a month: the oldest System Restore point always gets corrupted. Whenever I empty out my restore points following a significant change, I now start out with two restore points, and let the first one serve as a sort of buffer. Still, I am extremely anal about system stability, and find this less than acceptable.

    I have attached event logs for both incidents. SFC isn't finding any problems, and malware scans come up clean as always. Any help would be appreciated, but I'd much prefer a "patch and move forward" solution, involving a targeted fix; starting from scratch is overkill for minor issues like these IMO, as Windows will eventually find another way to break itself. Everything else works flawlessly at the moment; it's just these two, little bugs annoying me to no end. Thanks in advance!
