Sounds like you have some 4 core programs installed in your 3 core
directory, or some 2 core programs installed in your 4 core directory,
or some combination of inappropriate 32-bit/64-bit programs conflicting
with your system files/routines.

You could have several things wrong, or perhaps just one big thing
is terribly wrong. If I'd only had it 8 months, and it were the
newest machine in my formidable inventory, I'd be inclined to to
save my essential data, and doo-dads, make a notepad list of my
personal configuration(s), and then simply re-install using the
disc, or the restore feature of the unit.

Then you could update all the appropriate Windows' fixes, reboot,
cleanup, reboot, defrag and then slowly and methodically start to
correctly install your personal programs and porn files in the
exactly correct places.

At 8-months, you should still be entitled to call up the
Sears Tech Support Section for assistence with these chores.
If it's an HP, you should also celebrate the fact that little
Ms. Carly Fiorina gots her arse whooped by Barbara Boxer in
California which goes to show that you just cain't roll-out
all this Chinese-bullshit and then buy the CA elections.

Also, with an HP, if you just raise enough hell on their 800
number (which initially is in India), eventually they will transfer
you to a nice American engineer in California who will tell you how
to boot into secret administative menus and also send you some free
stuff like DVD's and extra software and stuff like that. You must
be very careful, however, because the Indian guy will ask for your
credit card number, and then charge you hundreds of dollars for a
pack of st00pid CDs which you'll never use anyways... There's
different key-combinations to tap when booting up that will give
you a bunch of neat options which you can change around and even
some which HP really doesn't want you to know, or they'd have just
put them in the manual in the first phreekin' place instead of
making you spend days on the telephone telling those dumbasses how
money grows on trees in America, but most of us won't go out and
pick it because that's what the illegal Mexicans do, and then we
just overcharge them for rent, clothes and groceries and stuff.
No wonder they all want to come over here and get some food stamps!



I AM Bucky Breeder, (*(^;
I am about two clicks better than 'TOTALLY'!

You should not view the world in terms
of things which you do - or do not - "like";
rather, you should view the world in terms
of how things "actually are", recognizing
and finding acceptance of them as such.

This would immeasurably bring *much* more
stability, peace and tranquility into your life.

I could help you with that... but...
I really just don't like you that much.

Repent! The end is near.... Or, smoke 'em if you got 'em.
And... good luck if there's an apocalypse.

(Me? I don't go anywhere without a shotgun and package of beef jerky!)

(And some breath-freshening gum... just in case I run into any pretty
white ladies who wanna have some fun before I throw them out as bait
to the flesh-eating zombies so I can escape quietly yet very quickly.)

(And some condoms... because I wouldn't want to be the first guy who
survives the apocolypse on Murray Povich staring at DNA child support.)
