I have a Vaio thats about a week old. I had the Geek Squad at Best Buy install Norton and Spysweeper and all that jazz. When I brought it home and started it up, the start-up sound was skipping really bad--I just figured because the notebook was new. Fast forward to now--I'm in Vermont at school and the Vaio is still messed up. It takes forever to boot up, the start-up sound skips, when I play songs they skip, especially when I'm running other programs. So we brought it to Best Buy--we looked at it and discovered that the comp was running about 50 programs. So they did a diagnostic on it, deleted the OS and reinstalled it and also did some manual updates. Apparently the guys at GS didn't do the fuctionality test when I first bought it for some reason, so the guys here did that. I got it back yesterday and it was working great. I downloaded and installed Firefox and AIM, scanned with Norton and Spysweeper with nothing bad. Now today I booted it up and same thing--it took forever. Task Manager says theres about 45 programs running! I have no idea what's going on. Could this really be from Firefox and AIM? I don't have a lot of options seeing as I'm at school and am busy with athletics. Any help would be greatly appreciated
