yea i dont think the computer is working much at all... i dont know why it hangs up. i think that luigi has it good because his only take 20 strokes of the bar. mine can take up to 15 minutes in exetreme cases. it is SOOO annoying you guys cant even comprehend. if anyone can come up with a solution other than run spyware/anti-virus, reg cleaning, and hi-jack this (because that doesn't work for me) that would be cool. maybe some other piece of information that may be useful is that everytime i start windows (and actually get to the desktop) it always says that my CD/DVD RW combo drive is new hardware. it works but it has to install it every single time. are you having this problem too luigi?

^ (9/7/2010): Ha, I remember when that was the stuff. My water cooling has since leaked and fried my mobo. So now I'm rocking an MSI laptop with an i5 430m :)
