I have no idea what could have happened. I checked the eventvwr, but I really don't understand what the errors mean. In the eventvwr, under Applications, there was an error that said VSS under the Source.
Then, while I was typing this very email, the computer hung up again!!! I was doing everything I could not to have to reboot. When I got it back, the Topic Title & Topic Description had disappeared along with the text I'd started typing.
Again, in the eventvwr, it showed an error coming from DCOM. I don't know if my hard drive is finally giving up the ghost, but this is really scaring me!! The thing is - there is no warning. No overheating, nothing. I don't know if Nero caused the problem - it stopped responding while I was typing this email and that's what I was trying to make quit. Luckily this time, I was able to get Nero to quit after typing ctrl+alt+del about 20 times.
Any ideas what the problem could be? Is there any other way I can check to find out what error is causing these problems?
