It just quit working again. I noticed some pages hang a lot or are really
slow trying to load. I have Comcast cable and it has been really fast, but
has been getting slower since I installed IE7.
I un-installed Adode flash player and my drag and drop started working right
after I got rid of it. Go figure, thanks for nothing Adobe.
I will see if this keeps working over the next few days. Then I will
re-install Adobe flash plug-in again.

It still doesnot work.
Thanks for any help,
Dragging from where and dropping to where does not work.
Maybe I missed part of the statement of the problem, XP version, SP,

for that unknown reason:
Download, install, update and do a full scan with these three free
malware detection programs:
Malwarebytes (MBAM): http://malwarebytes.org/

Does drag and drop works and it is just really slow or does drag and

choose Task Manager, choose the Processes tab, double click the CPU
heading to sort from most to least.
It will be updating and changing a bit. System Idle Process is like
"free" time, so the more the better and it should be on top of the
My System Idle Process is never less than 85, but that depends on what
else is running
Under System Idle Process look at the processes with the highest
numbers. My Firefox runs 10-20 and is the next highest and the rest I

Do you see anything you can't recognize or can't identify that is
taking a lot of CPU?
Run down for me in a list the top 5 or 6 (Image Name and CPU only).
