note: i accidentally deleted my recovery partition to make room for my ubuntu install but i have a win 7 upgrade disk that ive used to save my system before
any way ive been having a lot of problems with fire fox and 1 website http://www.beefgir.com (more often than not its the first website i go to when i boot up)that i have been apart of for 2 years and it works fine on my other systems (win xp)and my ubuntu partitions what happens is the whole system hangs and is very sluggish for about 20 minutes after
i just checked my system log and around the time i boot i get this error "event 11,atpi The driver detected a controller error on \Device\Ide\IdePort0."
what i have tried
1 disabling my fire wall/widows fire wall (i forgot to do this when i put in my 3rd party one) |this worked for a while
2 runing virus scan with comodo internet security | completely clean
3 reinstalling firefox
4 removing unnecessary software from my start-up list
5 restarting the dwm.exe service
i don't believe its an infection but it is always a possibility
im still a bit new to win 7 despite being an expert on xp (i have fixed many problems on friends xp box's and had a few clients over the summer to get some extra cash)
any help is greatly appreciated let me know if i need to run a hijack this
