This sounds like some software you have running in the background.  I've often 
noticed this kind of behavior when the system displays some kinds of dialogs, 
like the crash dialog.

  Hi all,
  I have a weird problem here I could use some help with.
  I am running Jaws 7 with media center 2005 and everything was working fine 
and then I some how fried my hard drive.  I replaced the hard drive and 
  media Center and Jaws.  Now Jaws will stop reading desktop icons, folders and 
files, and items in list boxes and such.  Jaws will also not read lines in
  WordPad when I arrow up and down.  If I close Jaws and restart it it will 
then work again.  I can not figure out what is causing this because sometimes
  it will work great for hours and then sometimes it will stop after a few 
  All my settings under display and folder options are set to Jaws friendly 
settings and tech support at Jaws said they had no idea.  I also updated my 
  card driver to the latest version.
  The only thing I can think of is that my video card was also damaged when the 
hard drive fried.  Any help or suggestions would be great.
