    Unexected shut-downs

    Two or three weeks ago when the computer goes into hibernation, when I come back later, I find the computer has shut-down. When you press the power button it shows the Dell logo and about half of the start-up activity bar hung-up. When I press the power button again, Windows loads as it should. I also noticed about the same time access to the internet became extremely slow. May just be a coincidence but who knows. This computer has always been extremely fast in all aspects until now.

    Real hassle to restart the computer every time you leave it for a half hour or so.

    I think I have checked most all things that may be causing the problem, but can't be sure, I tried a re-store but it didn't correct the problem. Have cleared "Cookies" and temp files to no avail. I sure don't want to a re-install and need to re-install all my software.
