ok, i am having the following issues:
when windows is started (i can see the interface) it is completeley locked for 30-50 secs.
tried: used some app to delay startup of some programs (didnt work very well)
when i right click on a tray icon the default taskbar menu opens with also the menu from the application
this started a long time ago, but i chose to ignore it.
today i wrote some app that renders gradients and so to the screen
this runs with approx 70 frames/s
no problem so far
when i run it on the computer of my brother, he gets 400 frames!
now compare the computer systems:
processor: Amd 3800 + X2
vid card: XFX geforce 7800 gtx
mem: 1Gb DDR
amd (don't know the model, it's 5 years old)
mem: 512 MB
when i see these 3 things, i'm starting to believe my computer is hijacked or running inside some virtual environment
how can i test this, and what can i do about it?
