Great that gives you more security now.
Have you reduced the restore points space?


yep. things seemed faster after that; firefox loaded quicker, etc. it was previously up to the max amount. i guess i can't immediately say whether this stuff stops the freezing issue, i'll have to wait and see.

That is good to hear.
I would suggest running another Defrag to clean everything up again. Also how many toolbars do you have on your FF?
They will slow FF or IE down trying to load all that nonsense also when starting them.
If you want we can try to disable them and load them one at a time to see which one is causing the most slowdown when loading.

toolbars? I don't think I have any other than the main one with a choice of searches (google, youtube, wiki, etc.). will run another defrag though. thanks for all your help so far. :)

I haven't had any freezes since this thread. I'm guessing it was the restore point thing and maybe the java that was causing it. However, I've also been defragging weekly, so that might be helping too.
