My computer has been slower than normal lately and i'm not sure why. Whenever I open windows media player and go straight to videos instead of music the computer will shut down. If I play music first its fine. If I open my videos in my documents I get a message saying windows has encountered a problem we are sorry for the inconvenience. Earlier when I was on the web the toolbar disappeared, i'm not sure how to explain this but the page was disappearing piece by piece and it was scrambling. I exited the page and when i rolled my mouse over whatever disappeared on my desktop went back to normal. I scanned my comp with virus & spyware scanners and found nothing.
