Hi everyone, hoipefully someone's seen this happen before: Whenever I go to plug in something into one of my USB slots, my computer immediately and instantly shuts off, as though I had pulled the power cord out of the socket. This started happening just recently following some strange issues. Just a few days ago, my system began taking up to 10 minutes to fully load up to where I could run any programs without the system hanging. The avg time before then was around 1 minute. The only thing I had done differently was perform windows update (there were 14 updates to be installed). Things have been whacky since then, so I had figured it was an issue with one of the updates, so I performed a restore to last known good config, but I still have the same issues. My computer is used for 3 things: Do college homework, play WoW (I never go to wow fansites, ever.), and check my email (I get commercial, campus and blizzard email, and the occasional Best Try -- err BUY sales adverts). I'm a tad stumped here.
