One qestion, when you formated did you choose the quick format? If so that's why because when I formatted my moms dell I chose quick instead of the regular one :-/. It was a waste of time because I had to do it again.

If you ever have any questions feel free to email me at, I will send you back an email as soon as possible.

Doubt that has anything to do with it. What are your system specs? Did you install any programs? How many icons do you have in your taskbar? Did you let Windows Update install all your hardware?

Actually he has a point, there is a reason for a regular format and quick format. Also I dont know wether or not you have filled up your HDD or got a bunch of BS spyware and stuff. Get back at me.
