I have had nothing but problems with Blue Screen crashes (see my other post topic BLUE SCREEN CRASHES) now when I try to shut down I'm getting:

Wait: Windows is trying to shut down C Directory Change Watcher Helper

This will not shut down and even if I choose END NOW it will not shut down my computer. It is slowing and locking everything up and at idle I'm passing 50% CPU usage. And I have to cold shut down. If I start it back up it's a bit slow but then seems (and seems is the word of choice) to be working.

I did have to download IE7 again today because it disappeared into the black hole overnight. Is this something that IE7 has as a security measure? Do I need it? What the heck is it?
I google searched and did a search here without any luck, anyone want to take a stab at it?

Thanks much,
