It's definitely seriously ill - errors all over the place, no way I dare let it connect to the internet as for many of the programs (including my security software) it says I don't have the permissions to run it.
Was refusing to close down cleanly but seem to have got it round that one, but doesn't really help if it basically unusable. My suspicion is registry corruption, I don't think its a virus but who knows.
I think I'm looking at using the recovery partition to do a factory reset, then I may look at upgrading from Vista to Windows 7 if I am feeling really brave. In the meantime I am limited to access via Android or borrowed computers
