Try a little cleaning first chorusman...

Windows has a built in component to check and correct any linking/shortcut/program errors.  By scanning your disk for errors once every two weeks and guarantee less 'blue screen errors' or 'illegal operation errors'.  

To start Scan Disk, click 'Start' > 'Programs' > 'Accessories' > 'System Tools' > 'Scan Disk'.  Select the drive to scan, and make sure 'Thorough' is selected and 'Automatically Fix Errors' is checked.  Click OK.

Please keep in mind while Scan Disk is running, you cannot use your computer.  Scan Disk may take 30 minutes to 2 hours.


Then you should run Disk Defragmenter after you have scanned your disk.  Disk Defragmenter is a built in Windows utility that relocates the data on your hard drive to one side.  While it does this, it collects all program fragments and data and bunches them together, thus improving the speed of your programs and increasing the amount of free space on your hard drive.  

 

To run Disk Defragmenter click 'Start' > 'Programs' > 'Accessories' > 'System Tools' > 'Disk Defragmenter'.  Select the drive and then click 'Defragment'.

 

Please keep in mind while Disk Defragmenter is running, you cannot use your computer.  Disk Defragmenter may take 30 minutes to 2 hours.

Post back and let me know after your done BOTH the ScanDisk and the Disk Defragmenter... Grin
