    Well... it is possible that your computer is getting old and its time of an upgrade. However, before deciding if your want to upgrade your computer, I recommend downloading Ad-Ware SE Personal, it is a free program that will check for malware. Update all of your virus definitions and perform another scan. If this is still a problem, your registry may be corrupted and you have to reinstall windows. GL!

    I'm willing to bet, bad drivers.

    System drivers that is!! You'll need to go to chipset vendor's site and grab the latest version for the chipset. I never recommend going to the manufacturer of the motherboard, they usually don't keep up on the latest versions.

    Also...make sure you have the latest BIOS for the motherboard. If there were any hardware issues with prior releases, they may have fixed it. That, you get from the motherboard's main website.

    Even though it's new....it could be a hardware problem. But we might as well get any software issues out of the way first.
