I suppose you could group them and disable a group, anti virus, spyware, firewall etc and check how it does

Though disable all works for me :whistling:

It appears that that may not be the problem at all. My CD-ROM appears to be dying. I am looking for an updated driver but having a devil of a time.

an LG driver...for...HL-DT-ST CD-ROM GCR-8523B

It is a CD-ROM reader only.

1. apparently not reading properly
2. green light stays on dimly
3. sometimes does not open
4. takes a long time to read a disk, and no time at all to read others

Driver?
Dying?

I'm not a hardware person...

With ALL those symptoms, I'm almost 100% sure it's dying

Time to replace :whistling:

Ditto...but I thought that I'd run it past you geeks first...not being a hardware geek, what do I know... :whistling:

Off to the shop tomorrow.

Thanks
