Ive been running vista on my desktop for over a year now and just this week it wasn't being itself. For some reason certain programs wouldent open anymore, i would double click them and nothing would happen, one day i noticed that there was only around 10 - 14 system processes running, instead of 30+ system processes.

its almost as if my OS was eating itself alive, finally this morning i thought a system restore would do the trick but nope, after i tried a system restore windows wouldent boot anymore, i have no idea what happened.

and seriously i was using the hell out of this computer this summer, but now im in college, i rarely use it as much and this is all i did, i went on youtube and facebook, played starcraft 2 and resident evil 5. thats all ive been doing on this computer, i havent been doing anything stupid.

Possible that the hard drive failed or one stick of memory went bad.

Maybe you're missing some critical Windows files or some went corrupted? Try doing a repair with the setup disk.
