Hi all,

I'm having a bit of a problem. My computer has started hanging on startup at 'detecting IDE drives' screen. It will not go past there and I have to shut down the PC and then start up again.

When the computer actually does decide it will boot properly it runs extremely slow. I also have noticed that some of the GUI graphics disappear. Such as the top bar on dialog boxes disappears sometime the word 'start' on the start menu goes as well as some not all the icons in the start menu.

I installed Trend Micro Internet Security Pro 2008 a week or two ago and I'm not sure whether this is chewing up all my memory or what is going on. I have run a hijackthis scan and the log is below.

I would greatly appreciate some help with this problem as I'm getting extremelly frustrated with my computer as it is stopping me from doing my graphic and web design work as photoshop barely has enough memory to run.

Just an update: I have been running a full system scan through trend micro internet security pro 2008 and it has been going for well over 6 hours now. it actually seems stuck on a particular file.

Also checked out my task manager and my cpu process is between 1-4% which i thought very odd given that my system is running extremelly poorly. I am now constantly getting error messages in relation to memory insuffiency. This set up has been working very well for about a year now.

I really hope someone can help!


I disconnected the IDE drive not shown on startup.
Namely: My DVD drive.
System booted up fine. DVD still under warranty so taking back.
NOTE: My system - Two Raptor Raided, Ubuntu/MySQL server.
