My processor is an i7 2760QM 2.4GHz but WEI says it's a 4.5 processor when just last week it was in the 7s.

Well as with all IT related issues, the first question you have to ask yourself is "what has changed?"

Did you recently do any updates to the machine? Add or remove hardware? Install new programs?

And again, I wouldn't put too much weight in the WEI score from Windows..you want to test true performance and benchmark, use a 3rd party utlity..ie..3DMark..etc..

Maybe the test didn't run properly or you had a lot of programs open so the processor was not totally devoted to the test.

Or maybe they compared you to a i7 3960X (joke).

Its Windows, just reboot and start the test again.
If ANYTHING happens in windows, just reboot. And if a reboot fails, reboot again.
