There is nothing running in the background and no pop up screen to cause it.  I 
had a sighted friend look and I am sitting on the desktop with nothing else up.

  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.
