i been having this issue on restart where it lags and lags and freezes and unfreezes. It always comes back but just takes a long time for some reason to get applications to work. most all applications will say "not responding" up in the corner, but will always come back just to freeze a few seconds later. whats interesting is that after a while a dialog box for my norton security would come up and everything's fine after that. ive had this happen before when norton has ran in the background only to come up with something saying "fix now" only o not have the problem fixed. not sure if this issue correlates. i uninstalled norton to see. anyways just sitting around i start hearing and noise that is driving me nuts and im thinking someone downstairs is doing something. i even called my gf to find out what the hell was going on. well i find out its my hard drive ticking. after a while it goes away, comes back blah blah. then i restart. now it wants to check disk for consistency. maybe a bad sector i dont know seems to be fine almost but i dont have norton anymore. is there a way to find out if my drive is going. or is it norton giving me a hard time?
