Thoughts? Yes, I would make sure you don't have any extraneous shit running in background that might be hogging memory. Also, do a spyware scan using Ad-Aware from www.lavasoft.de
. Check to see if you have webhancer installed, too. Go to Control Panel/Add-Remove Programs, look for Webhancer in the list. If it's there, uninstall it.
Something's hogging your resources. Search and destroy.
