    Is it a Dell? Doesn't look like it from the specs. If it is, you can try a restore from factory image.

    What have you installed since you got it?

    Have you been doing any heavy downloading and if so, what kind?

    For someone who only got the computer 1 week ago, you're pretty busy!! Do you not have a real job? ;)

    Anyhow, now for the guilt-testing question, have you been using any peer-to-peer filesharing programs such as Limewire, Ares, Kazaa, ... ?

    My first reaction is that there is some kind of system corruption. I might first try Vista repair installation. I have yet to do one, so I'll presume the steps are identical or similar to an XP repair installation.
