    sound like you picked up a virus. I would go to another pc..that was clean and download a new updated aniti virus and try and install it in safe mode. if you cant try making a hirem bood cd or usb stick it has anti virus tools on it.
  2. test your hardware first, faulty hdd's can make things slow to respond

    smorizio you mean hiren? last time i checked it had pirated software careful a mod may ban you for legitimate reasons god forbid
