I'm pretty sure I know more about Windows than about 99% of users. I
have never in my life paid anyone for help with a Windows PC, and
called for tech support maybe twice in the last 25 years. And I have
never once reinstalled Windows to repair a problem. I actually fix the
problems instead of using that sort of workaround. The problems I get
stuck on tend to be pretty bizarre, and no repair facility would even
think of trying to find a fix outside of formatting and reinstalling.
The problem is exactly what you said - there is something wrong, but
it's with Windows. A simple hard drive clone that keeps reporting
source disk errors has me stumped.
