Check you startup folder in msconfig... Check your task manager for unknown processes that may be running....

there was one Unknown prog relating to Language (dunno what that's about..) - so I disabled that one..

also disabled Windows Live Messenger and Steam, but problem persists..

seems that all my Office2007 progs are running very slow as well..
also boot-up is taking about three times longer than usual - what's going on..?

anyone else getting this - it's not that recent update for IE8 vulnerabilities, is it..??

Run a full system scan with your AV program......also, try disabling everything in your startup tab except for your AntiVirus and your firewall and see if that helps...

No. It won't.

Get Malwarebytes.

ran Malwarebytes - it found a HiJack entry - which I dumped..
- still behaving oddly though..

- still very slow boot-up and progs generally taking ages to be discovered by OS on start..
- and all Office2007 programs very sluggish to start as well..

- still no joy - all office progs running extremely slow
- all will give message "Not Responding.." if I try to action anything while the progs are running..

seems one of my SSD's is playing up - system attempts to verify it are failing..
- Office diagnostics state that system is unstable due to hardware failure..

the failing drive (G: ) is OCZ 60G SSD..

My recycle bin takes ages to appear as well. I wouldnt rely on malwarebytes solely. Try various other tools like a-squared. Having said that mine has found nothing. I think its an inherent system "feature" rather than anything malign.

I've a feeling that the SSD is somehow "locked" - the system still goes looking for it, hence the delays
- this is the look of it:
-picture2.jpg

Drives C: and E: are 100G and 900G partitions on the same HD
Drive F: is SSD-one

- as you can see, Drive G: which was previously named as SSD-two has reverted to it's default identity of Local Disk..
- and has become undetectable by the OS - the green loading/progress bar doesn't complete its sweep across the address box..
- it hangs up, right near the end..

- very odd..

Where's the Recycle Bin gone?
Having just bought a new computer, with Windows 7 pre installed, I must admit that so far, a couple of weeks, I don't really like it! Any way, apart from that, can somebody tell me where the Recycle Bin has gone, or is a deleted file lost forever?

Recycle Bin
The way I understand it, with certain utilities, it is possible to recover "stuff" that has been deleted through the recycle bin. So this means, in my mind, that the "stuff" was not completely removed and is therefor still using space. How do I go about completely freeing the space that was once...
