    When did the computer last work well? What changed; installation or removal of hardware or software; a W7 update; an update to an anti virus or other anti malware program; an update to a different program?

    Would you consider yourself to be a beginning, intermediate or advanced computer user?

    Please provide a screen shot of device manager with all hidden items displayed.

    Yes, I think the forum can help you.

    BUT, we will need additional information.
