    My computer was working completely fine until last night. I was playing counterstrike and all of the sudden i see my fps drop from 120 to 25 so i restart my computer thinking this was the problem. When i reboot all things go to hell. My skype is always reading "connecting" spotify won't play music its just frozen. Everytime i try to watch youtube videos or twitch streams it just crashes shockwave.. I can't open steam or the league of legends client. I have 0 ideas of what went wrong and i don't know how to look this up on google for help as it is so specific. I am very close to a full restore but i thought looking here first would be better before just fully committing.

    what windows version

    why not do a restore?


    Restore PC to an Earlier Date & Time

    Go Start>>All Programs>>Accessories>>System Tools>>System Restore

    • Click in the radio button Choose a different restore point
    • Click Next
    • put a tick in Show more restore points
    • Pick a Date before this happened
    • Click Next
    This should restore the PC to that time & date

    you may need to use safemode to do the restore. As the PC starts keep tapping F8 - a menu will appear - choose safemode

    windows 8

    windows 7

    windows vista

    Windows XP
