I doubt its the game, running Win7 64bit Ultimate no problems here.

Same here. Win 7 Home Premium x64 w/ no probs at all. Actually, it runs great.

I've seen apps destroy windows before when uninstalled, but nothing like what you propose. Sorry mate, but STO isn't the culprit here.

I've run every build of Windows 7 since early beta and never encountered it behaving like that on it's own.

I'm using Win 7 x64 and am not getting this issue either. Maybe try reloading windows with a full format of the win partition.

# 26 No trouble here either

It is my understanding that the game is even installed under the user directory instead of "Program Files" so it will not need elevated permissions when patching. I am running the game under Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit and have encountered no problems with the game or my system that weren't due to ATI video card drivers.

Not saying it's windows 7's problem i'm just saying what happened. STO is defiantly the trigger. doubt this will happen on anyone elses just saying it happened to me.

I can think of only two probably causes to your experience.

1.) Hardware failure. PC components DO fail, often times in unexpected ways. For example I had just told a friend I needed to reboot my system to swap from Ubuntu to XP. As soon as I was about to select which OS to boot into the main memory module, a 1gb module decided to short out. Result was 20 minutes of troubleshooting and falling back on a 128mb stick from an earlier upgrade. Also had a power supply work fine one day, then the next morning make angry buzzing sounds blowing a UPS, surge strip, and circuit breaker...

You could try checking the cables to see if they're properly connected, a loose power or data cable could cause the drive to not be detected or spin up.

2.) If its a networked drive then the host system for the network drive is not responding, either due to a faulty network cable, LAN card, failed login, or bad drive mapping. Or the drive/data might not be shared any longer.

I'll just throw my hat in here and say I've had most iterations of Win7 x64 since beta 1 and never had an issue like this happen.
