Thanks for taking over for me while I ate dinner, Rich.

Now try updating your graphics card drivers, and don't change anything else.

Your goal is to gradually reinstall everything, observing the results of each change. That is the way to determine the culprit.

well in order to test if something isn't working. My system seemed to be working, and then all of a sudden it would freeze, normally after idling. Also my task bar at the bottom would occasionally disappear. The point is, it could take a while to see that a driver or software is the culprit.

I see. Well, you can create a Restore Point before changing something. If it happens again, you can better diagnose it.

okay. Well I think one of the culprits is either the fingerprint scanner software or youcam, my webcam software. for whatever reason HP's software doesn't seem to support 7. Quickplay would be my next suspect but I never really tested it prior to installing the other two.

No, thank you. Usually I can only help one; now I was able to help two people.
