Written from my Macintosh, instead of my Windows laptop.
! ANGRY !
Okay so I switched off my laptop this afternoon and it gives me some kinda bull about explorer.exe not wanting to quit, so I force it to quit - hey, I'm a busy guy and I force crap to close from time to time (Call Of Duty, Quicktime, Quake, etc), so I didn't think anything of it.
Fast forward to this afternoon -
I switch on my laptop, everything's normal. I go to My Connections from the Start button, I dialup while listening to 'Shine On You Crazy Diamond', I go to AIM to harrass Chris Berry once I'm online- and then something weird happens. The laptop locks up, and I get major ass lag from hell.
Now that I'm back on the laptop, the toolbar/start button jazz is all gone, all the stuff on my desktop is gone (Trash, shortcuts, etc), and the right click doesn't work.
I hit CTRL+ALT+Delete, the Task Manager opens, and I see my CPU Usage is at 100%. I've got no idea what the hell is going on, as I'm an idiot with computers - BUT - I managed to pull up Norton and I'm scanning for viruses as we speak. Of course, the Norton thing expired not long ago, so I don't know if that'll be any help.
Help, somebody. Tell me what to do.
