When I open up like a song for instance, I was doin my radio show and I had a playlist every time the system had to start a new song it would skip and jump and make it sound like I was chopping it up. As for my system everything seems to be going slower, if I'm playing a game I notice where it was once smooth running at the beginning of the game my game jumps and skips or feels like it's "lagging". I seem to take longer to open programs and boot up or shut down my system. Can ya help a cat out?? It's pretty nasty it's really bothersome. Thank you. :tazz:

First step is to eliminate the obvious.

Visit the link in my signature and follow the guidelines in that forum...if the problem persists, return here and we'll work on the less obvious

Well I was pretty sure it's not malware cause since I did the hijack logs with you all I've had the preventive stuff put on and every scan always comes back clean. Even think I did a virus scan with norton and no hits. So I'm not sure but I'll run a log again.

OK, didn't know that. If you did it with me, I have a very short term memory :tazz:

OK, start with

start > run type
cmd
enter
at the prompt type
chkdsk /f /r

Say yes and reboot, take a walk, this will take a while

Come back.
Right click My Computer, choose MANAGE, choose Disk Defragmenter, select your drive and run that.

Now, visit the website for your computer maker and update any/all device drivers.

If the problem persists, return
