Your ignorance is the Devil's bliss. Every time you scorn what confounds you, he smiles. Every time you sow the fear of him where there was none, he laughs. It's you he loves. It's you he thanks in his evening prayers. -Everville
on my folks computer every few minutes the computer will freezeup show an hourglass for about 30 - 45 seconds then come back to life.
I especially notice this when I'm browsing .. it'll useally load 99.9% of a page... I can see the whole thing but can't click on it till the hourglass goes away and then it catches up to every scroll and click I did.
I don't see anything major when I have the system manager open.
not many programs in the startup on msconfig and nothing that looks out of the ordinary..
