Soooo I had just bought and built a brand new desktop less than 2 months ago. The past week or so has been hell. Thing is bogging down, freezing on me for minutes at a time, then returning back to normal. Today I installed a Java update. Then shortly after got a message from anti-virus that there was a threat detected. Ok, no biggie, this has happened before.... Then get an error about Hard drive issue and to back up all my files immediately. So I run defrag. Defrag tells me Windows Media Player database was corrupt. Makes sense - that program was giving me shit since the day I started using this comp. Bam - I come back to check on defrag and DOS screen saying reboot and enter boot media into boot device or whatever. Now I'm being told this is possible HDD failure. Can't boot in Safe Mode. Luckily I had just backed up an album worth of drum tracks yesterday (drummer would have KILLED me). One thing that worries me is my plugin licenses. I recently bought Waves C4 and I think that would be safe because the license is in the "cloud", except for the fact that the .dll file was never backed up. Also I bought SSD Essentials and that allowed me 2 licenses. I used them up - one on my laptop, one on my brand new PC that is now (more than likely) toast. Is there anything I can do about these lost licenses and plugins?!? Taking the machine to practice tonight where a few of the computer savvy guys will look at it. This is just super frustrating and I literally don't have time for it.
