Hi, a few weeks ago i built my new computer. i installed windows vista on it. so i am not sure if the problems i am having are due to some hardware issue that i may have not set up right (i am not an experienced computer builder) or vista... i assume it's vista though.
one of the issues i have is sometimes i will go to my start menu and try to open a folder (my computer, my documents, or a microsoft office program, anything really) and nothing will happen. the computer just doesn't respond. If i restart, then it works fine again or if i wait maybe 10 minutes or so then it will work again. but sometimes i have multiple things open or a few IE windows open and its' not always the most convenient thing to have to restart. especially since sometimes when the computer decideds to not respond - i also cant save what i have open or add the IE windows into my favorites for easy access again. i dont know what the hell is going on but it's sooo annoying. i can't imagine waht it is doing. it seems almost frozen but not really because i can move the mouse and click things... just nothing happens... it doesn't even act like it's TRYING to do something. it just sits there as if i've told it to do nothing at all. this happens ALL the time, multiple times an hour.
i dont even know how to start going about determining what the problem is. any help would be appreciated.
