I have not scanned for spyware, I can try that too. My system isn't that old though so that really didn't occur to me. And there is the fact that my system acted iffy when I first formatted it. I wish I would of thought to time the boot up then. I didn't think much of it, thinking it would get faster after I optimized.
I hate to format... again. But I may need to try that. Anyone know how to backup Outlook data? (Inbox, personal folders, etc?)
