I reformatted my harddrive after backing up all my important files, and then after it was complete I put my backup files back on it and then eventualy I noticed that the problem was still there. I cannot confirm that putting my files back on the computer was the cause because I didn't make sure the problem was fixed before I put them back on it.
I do not like the looks of this. A updated virus scan from http://housecall.antivirus.com revealed nothing. Sometimes the computer will fall into this state of hanging-ness while I'm in windows. About fifteenminutes ago I tried to post this on the forum and I got finished with the post but then I went into my control panel and clicked on performance and settings and then it DID THE SAME THING IT DOES WHEN I TRY TO RESTART! The computer moniter clicked off and my computer stopped responding. This is mindboggling. I hope someone here can help me trouble shoot it. The computer has been blessing for two years and now it's sick. Thanks!
