So today when I woke up, I noticed that my CPU was making a weird scratching noise. Like when it's trying to play a scratched DVD or something, and then it took 10 minutes to load to the User Accounts menu. I was thinking one of my brothers had installed something, so I logged onto my account to get rid of whatever it was. Then I noticed that it was taking FOREVER to start up [I have to let MSN and McAfee start before anything, if I start Firefox up, it will take longer then normal. Which usually is less then 30 seconds normally.] So as soon as MSN pops up, I ran it, didn't take a long time. So when I decided to run WMP to listen to some music, It froze my computer for a minute. Then it wouldn't run. I exited out, went to the Properties on my C: drive and tried to run a clean up and defrag. my computer. Both froze. I reset the computer then, and still got the same problems. I mean every other program but these few seem to be working just fine. Though when I run programs, they take a bit longer to load then normal. Why did that just start happening this morning? I hadn't installed anything or downloaded anything. I even ran Norton for viruses, and it came up clean. Help here?
