i've always had some hardware problems, my computer tends to lock up a lot randomly. even if i'm running only one program sometimes it'll freeze.
but lately a few of my programs have been acting strange on start-up. my firefox does not stay still the screen it jumps around as if im scrolling when i'm not. my trillian contact list won't come up. i've tried re-installing but it doesn't help. i'm not really sure whether i need to troubleshoot these programs (and how to do that) or do something with my computer. i have good antivirus software and adware. do you think i should reformat my hard drive?

Do you really mean always? Like since you've owned it it's never worked quite right? Or is this something that developed over time and is now really prominent? Or did it all start suddenly after working well for a while?
