Correct, I'm not even going to weigh in until I know what we are dealing with, hence the questions.

Re: Is my friend's laptop doomed?

Tinky has trusted me access with Teamviewer and it is a software issue. I created a new user rebooted to new user and it is improved massively. A new SSD and clean install would be the course of action I would take and if I was closer to Cornwall what I would have done haha

Delighted to say lappy up and running sweet as a nut, thanks to the patience and knowledge of Jaymoss, I enjoyed the banter Jay, you certainly know your stuff, very grateful for all your help. :nwor thy:


PS I may have to pick your brains about a clean install of windows, maybe maybe not.
