"I've deleted my photo editing program and my print shop along with other large programs. I've defragged all drives. Cleaned the cookies (hee). And ... drumroll please ... I'm running much fast and I can get on the Internet without waiting for more gray hair to sprout. I'm not sure which fix did the trick or maybe they all did in conjunction with each other. Either way, thanks everybody for all the repair suggestions!!"
