Just recently began to have this problem, and i think it is related to my hard drive. First, started having issues with a new 500gb HD, it would occasionally not register sometimes upon startup. Usually, I would switch the sata cables around inside until i could startup and it would register. Just recently started getting an error message randomly saying something about a delayed write failed to that HD. So now, when i start it up, windows loads all the way and all my startup progs will load, i can click off of all the progs, except for everytime i minimize the ai booster, it locks up.
So, i would start up windows without touching the ai booster, and i could use the internet and everything. But, every time i would try to go to my computer, it would lock up. I tried going into add/remove to get rid of ai booster, but it fails to show any programs and just says loading list for forever. Also, one last thing is sometimes i would start up and norton would say something about the options are either corrupt or missing, so it loaded the default settings. Do i have some sort of virus, hardware problem, etc? Thanks for any help.
