Lol, I would love to but my desktop has seriously started sucking more then I ever thought possible. If I try to get on DoD it usually just shuts down on me and if it does load it up successfully it takes 30 min to connect and load the server =S I need a new rig :O
Hmm, it could be there's just too much overhead. Try running msconfig and unselecting a few start-up apps and reboot. It might help. It sounds as if there could be a lack of memory and possibly you may have to increase the size of the pagefile.
