    New PC Problem

    Hi nolookingca, I have already uninstalled avg when the problem started but that wasn't it. I have bitdefender, avg and zonealarm plus Ewido running for more than a year on 2 other computers with no problems at all, infact they complement each other very well and are a great combination. The first thing I did was to try another mouse but that also didn't make any difference Hello ^_^, checked the board very well and I can't see or smell anything unusual

    New PC Problem

    My first post and a cry for help to all you kind soles out there. Received my new pc after ordering it from the U.S.A. assembeled from parts I ordered by a friend out there.ASUS P5N32-SLI Deluxe, Intel Pentium 4 660, OCZ memory 2GB Gold. Ran fine when I first got it a few days ago with only XP Pro SP2 on it. I started by loading AVG on it and Ashampoo Uninstaller, ZoneAlarm then Bitdefender Pro and Ewido. Did an update from MS. Things started going bad when I booted the pc the next day, it slowed down getting the welcome screen that hanged for a couple of minutes the mouse pointer froze and could only get it going again by unplugging it from the usb port and reconnecting it (have to do this everytime to get it to work now). After the welcome screen I only get the desktop background with no icons, it hangs for a while then the icons appear and only some of the icons on the right side of the taskbar appear at first then after a few minutes the rest struggle to show. The speaker icon has gone, went to "sounds and audio properties" and all is greyed out so I couldn't do much there. Not much that I can do in general realy, system restore, defrag and most other utilities don't function, I can't install new programs. Ran a scan with BitDefender and Ewido but nothing found, tried Ewido in safe mode also and no luck however BitDefender refused to run in safe mode. I am no computer expert and would very much appreciate any help and guidance in sorting this machine out.
