All I'm going to say is that ME is universally accepted as the worst OS ever created. I wouldn't be surprised if upgrading it didn't turn your machine into an unusable brick of green goo. But anyway...

Update the crap out of everything! If that still doesn't help, do a Windows repair and see what happens (repair is an option if you boot up with the Windows CD). If that doesn't help, reinstall the OS (you shouldn't need to reformat). If THAT doesn't help...and I'd be starting to wonder about yer update...then clear the HDD off and start from scratch.

Don\'t hate the player...Hate the game...
