No idea yet but with all the problems you might want to consider a clean install.

I have, but GOD what a pain. Can I back up my program files so that I don't have to go and install everything again? I know of no such way to do that. Perhaps I should just get a HD to put Windows on and nothing else?

And by the way, W7 was supposed to be the answer to OSX, right? What's the deal?

Okay, I've reset a couple times, but haven't yet had a crash. I'm not exactly sure how this "verifier" program works. Could it still be running in the background or something?

That's the only change I've made other than removing my audio card and deleting all the software associated with it, and now my processor idles in the 20%s range, and everything, even FireFox is slow and gives the "(not responding)" message for a long while until it finally kicks into gear. It's like a huge fog has rolled in and is bogging down everything.

You can check verifiers state by typing verifier /query in an elevated command prompt.

by the way, i went through and manually deleted a massive amount of registry keys that were left over from creative technologies, though im sure i didnt get them all- that ccleaner didnt even find- and i thought it was making a difference, but apparently not.

In cmd if you type verifier /query. It will tell you what drivers are being verified. If none its off

Or if you want to turn it off type verifier /reset to disable it

Big breath... I think, I thiiiiink, it's all back to normal now. (Well, except for the complete lack of sound, but I'll get myself a new audio card that's NOT made by Creative Tech). Thank you for your help, I even still have some of my hair, what a pleasant surprise.
