6/22/2009 12:02:21 PM Computer recently had issues booting up. After dell splash screen it would take about 15 seconds on a black screen until the Windows XP Splash screen would come up and would take about 25 minutes to finish booting. I ran chkdsk and I can now boot normally.

9/20/2009 9:15:01 AM When closing any page, I get a message saying "something" detected, sending error report to MS. The page then will not stop running. Also get a message when bootin up that "MWS" has been installed and that I might want to delete it (I've done that but the message reappears when booting up). Finally, can't open any links.
