Need help!!!!

  1. I have a HP laptop that is giving me some problems. It runs very very slow and often crashes when trying to run an application. It seems to be running at 100% CPU usage. The problem seems to have started when I installed a HP Photosmart program onto the machine. I have tried un-installing this program and I'm still having issues. I went to device manager and it said that "this device is either not connected or the drivers are not installed - mrtRate device." I do not know what to do. The only option I can see is to boot the recovery disk that came with the laptop, but I am affraid to lose my files. Any ideas? If anyone needs more information, as you probably will, I can get into the laptop to check whatever is needed.

    Can you give us some more details? What program is it? Did you install something like an "all in one" HP printer? I have one now, and it is a HOG on system resources. If you have an older computer, I am not suprised it is overbearing it.

    Also, give us the specs of your computer please. Or better yet, fill the info in in your profile.
