I'm not getting any content in several places including:
- Windows Task Manager (tabs are really tiny. Nothing in lists)
- Skype (tried reinstalling)
- System Restore
Even Gmail was causing a crash in IE9, and partial rendering in Chrome.
Seems like some subsystem that these programs hook into has corrupted. Is there a good way to repair this behaviour?
When did this start being a problem? I powered the laptop off as I was in a rush (not a graceful close). Restarted, and it said "repair"? I let it try to repair, and after waiting for a long time, I decided to restart and see if it would started up normally. Subsequently, I have let it install a windows update. Had issues with skype before the update, so, I assume that some subsystem is broken.
A "system restore" is not possible right now, as I can't see any content inside the screens that I'd use to start off that action.
