Probably a virus scan. Lots of places schedule virus scans for mid-day Monday. Or you have a bad hard drive.

dirty, did you run spyware scanners ... check with TaskBar which process is hogging memory and/or CPU ... Run SuperAntiSpyware and MalawareBytes ... if you detect anything, run other scanners as well ... Also check to see if your virtual memory is good enough and is not mapped to C drive (which might already be defragmented) ... try mapping to another partition ...

My IT guy screwed up in a big way. My XP desktop machine at work got spywared such that it hogged the CPU, did not allow any anti-virus/spyware to run, disable the taskbar such that I cant kill any process ... hard rebooted the PC and found that it does not allow me to login. I type my password, and it goes into the windows login process, and then after sometime logs me out ...

At boot time, I was able to get some of my most critical research files ... and I had asked the IT person to do it similarly for all the files. He screwed up ... He got overwhelmed with this autologoff behavior of the spyware ... saved some documents but not all ... formatted the drive and installed brand new and then copied over the some set of backed up files without running antivirus/spyware check on it ...

After 3 days, I got attacked again with the same shit ... This time I handled it myself ... Even partitioned my drive into 3 partitions and also setup linux dual boot on it ...

Before you blame your poor IT guy - ask yourself this. How did the spyware/virus get on to your WORK machine? Could it be that you were visiting a site or reading an email for a non-work related purpose? Think....

It was a link on a site that I trusted should be fine ... I own the blame for that but the rest he is supposed to take care of it and more importantly when I had mentioned how to work on it ... it was not rocket science ...

Does your hp laptop have an nvidia geforce 8000 series video chipset? If so, you are close to screwed! My laptop bit the dust last nov because manufacturer defect with nvidia video card (it overheats and gets burnt). HP refused to cover it (warranty expired) despite the fact that other models of HP laptop with same video cards have been recalled and fixed for free. HP SUCKS!

And why is he supposed to fix your mess, if it was not work related? Do you go and clean his toilets at his house if he pinches off a loaf that is too big??
