A message recently popped up on my computer saying something like "Crash is imminent, backup your files now." My computer is very sluggish, and frequently freezes. Also, when it boots up a screen pops up with the title, "common." The computer will freeze if you try to do anything before the common screen pops up. I have defragged and scanned with no major problems. There is obviously a problem. Here are the Hijack This can results...can you help? :) Thanks in advance, Angie

Hello AngelAKA...

While there are a few suspicious entries in the log, the error you are seeing is a serious warning that your hard drive is about to fail. If you have important files on the drive, you should back them up to external media of some sort...or an external hard drive.
