I did a complete system restore on my computer...yes, that means it is basically wiped. The dim light thing is still going on, but it's not freezing now. Maybe it will live through Colorado. That's the hope, anyways. Now, back to deleting stuff off of here that for some reason comes back every time it has to be wiped (and I will never use...so it's a pointless waste of space) and reloading necessary items.
