Yes, Tommy...it's a very technical term:
rofl...I was drunk and annoyed by this problem when I made this post...obviously...lol
And Top Gear rules all...one of my all-time favorite shows.
Anyway...I've defragged (Defragler ftw) and done all the registry scans (CCleaner ftw) that a person can do. I also have AVG free on here that runs every day or two as well as spybot search and destroy, Ad-Aware and Windows Defender that all also get run periodically. In addition, I also have gone through the start up multiple times. The thing's definately clean...that's why this is so confusing.
On the "reload windows" front, I'm about || this close to saying to hell with it all together and installing Ubuntu Netbook Remix on here. I put a live version on my USB drive and booted from it a few times and REALLY like it. Only reason I don't do this is cuz I play world of warcraft from time to time with my wife and neighbors and I don't think that'll run on Linux...I'm amazed it runs on this at all...let alone how amazingly well as it does....
