    I have a Dell optiplex, that I have redone the operating sys in. I run win xp. In the process of putting all my programs back on, I added a new recording prog.. I dont think that changed anything, but now my camera barely records without stopping, fine for a min then just almost freezes. Ive run virus check, defrag, Task manager, and nothing. Comp. is slow now. I know its fast, it was before. The camera is slow and the playback on tracks while im trying to record within my other program is slow and cuts out as well. Its almost like the sound slows it down.
    Please help me get my computer back the way it was, and know it can be. Thanx.

    Please post your full computer specs.

    Also I would find out what brand your harddrive is and go to the manufacture website to download a diagnostic program to make sure its not on its way out. Since you apparently already reinstalled windows (Recently?) and you say its still slow I would check for a possible hardware issue.
