I have a Windows 7 machine which the hard drive was failing so I replaced the drive and did a restore from the Acronis full backup. At first everything seemed great until the client started actually working. Hear are the symptoms...
1) Windows search does not find anything (and files are definitely there and accessible).
2) When I plugged the pc into a different network at my home office I get an error that says "windows cannot setup homegroup on this computer".
3) Cannot download files within Internet Explorer. If for example, I try to download a program and I click the download button, it gives the option to save, save as or run. No matter which option I select, nothing happens.
4) Windows updates do not work
So far everything else is running great, lol. I hate to have to do a clean install as this is ALOT of work on. I'm doing a repair install form disk and running chkdsk at command prompt.
I'm thinking about resetting registry permissions next.
