    Screen Resolution keeps changing?

    Anyone know why my screen resolution would suddenly keep changing back to 1024 x 768?

    This has only started to happen the past week and everytime I change it back to 1280 x 1024 is stays fine whilst Im using the PC, but defaults back to the lower settle when idle.

    I've also suddenly experience a few problems with a slow down in speed, issues in connecting specifically to the iTunes and a general sluggishness. No viruses or spyware have been detected.

    Tried to do a system restore to an either time, but have just found out that Windows 7 doesn't appear to automatically create system restore points. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

    Then try Windows update for an updated gfx driver if you are using a via gfx then uninstall a windows update which is known to cause this issue use revo uninstaller

    Cheers - I tried and check both, but it's still happened. In addition now I cannot connect to iTunes, Spotify or Internet Explorer ???

    run a decent virus / malware check (not AVG!).

    of course windows7 creates auto restore points. Viruses prevent this sometimes too.

    download.bleepingcomputer.com/gri…com

    download.bleepingcomputer.com/gri…pif

    download.bleepingcomputer.com/gri…scr


    reset your internet explorer back to default clear passwords etc.

    Install ccleaner as well whilst your at it.
