Thanks for the tip JMH. My apologies about not including more info, I won't make the same mistake next time
. I took the tower out back and aired it out with some compressed air. There seemed to be some dust caked onto the heat sink of the CPU so I made sure to get rid of that and any other dust that remained.
I also checked Event Viewer as you suggested and found a few things under the Application tab:
Event ID: 6000
Descript: The winlogin notification subscriber <GPClient> was unavailable to handle a notification event
Descript: FireFox hung up
Thats all I really found so I decided to take a look under the system tab which was not so "boring" if you catch my drift.
A slew of Errors, I'll post some of most of them here(there were quite a bit)
Event ID: 7001
Descript: The Computer Browser service depends on the Server service which failed to start because of the following error: The dependency service or group failed to start
Event ID: 10005
Descript: DCOM got error "1084" attempting to start the service WSearch with arguments "" in order to run the server
Those are most of the errors that came up in Event Viewer. I'm thinking(and Im running a virus scan as I do this as well) is Im going to run a scan disk and defrag in addition to the virus scan. I also have a registry cleaner that I will run also. I'm also going to try out the tools you posted as well, and thanks for sharing them. Hopefully all it is is a matter of running a few scans and having the computer clean itself up.
Thanks again for the help
