    My problem is that whenever i start my laptop, I get the "Desktop Windows Manager stopped working" for the live messenger. But what's really my problem is that whenever i want to open mozilla firefox, it opens, but in less than a minute, it crashes right away. This also affected my safari and tells me that "safari has stopped working"..i read online that i should have checked the "DWM" in the services tab of "system figuration", but i don't even have an option because i don't have it in there anymore.. I don't know if its because i deleted some files i shouldn't have or wut is the prob.. If anyone can help me fix these problems, i would SO MUCH appreciate it. Thanx

    do you have Itunes and is that freezing up? because all other programs you mentioned happened to me. and it lead to me having to reformat.

    Yeah, but that's working just fine.. Wut doesn't open at all is the safari. It says that safari has stopped working. Mozilla opens but just for a couple of seconds until it crashes
