I'm not a moderator, just a guy trying to help. If you want your posts to be dealt with by moderators only...that might limit the suggestions that you make available from other forum members.
Just a point...a clean install is not done by ghosting.
When you restore a ghosted version of a system...everything that was right, everything that was wrong...at that time...is restored.
A clean install is a new beginning, with no excess baggage from prior installations. The hard drive is wiped clean, the O/S is installed, Windows is updated, programs/drivers are installed. Nothing of the previous installs remains.
I think I'd try doing some routine maintenance and malware defending...before I considered new equipment as a way of dealing with unknown, unsolved problems.
Why the clean install in Sep 07?
What malware-defense programs do you have installed and updated?
