hey i have a pc problem that i just built

1.when i right click on the desktop and click properties it seems to take long for the display window to pop up
instead of poping up right away it usually takes 2-3 second to pop up, i think my computer is fast enough to make it pop up right away

2.one more problem is that, when i use AOL messenger and i move the message window around, it lags and there is a lot of hard drive activity

3. hard drive makes a lot of noise...

i dont know if this is the hard drive problem or anything... please help me

please help me
thanks,

you can right click on each red x in event viewer, select properties, and it will show details of the error. You can also sent a report to M$ and view their knowledge base for additional clues as to what it means and possible solutions.
