comment USB drivers installed twice
Windows should tell you what's faulty about it in the Device Status box under properties for it in device manager. That error information could be helpful here, otherwise I can't think of anything other than what Tog mentioned.

comment Reinstall Windows 7 Ultimate?
Be careful checking your RAM speed... most tools (I use Speccy) show the speed that the RAM is running at... not its max speed. For power savings, IIRC, RAM will often be down-clocked when not needed. Fiddling with RAM timings can be a headache. My advice is almost always to set the mobo to auto and leave it be.

comment Why is access to my web site is slow for me but fast for other visitors? My access to other sites is fast
try a tracert to your site... there could be a dying switch somewhere. If it's your ISP's then you can call them and let them know.

comment run as dialog always pops up
@Daisetsu: The account has permissions, because I can use the account in the run as dialog without problems, but it always asks. I suspect there might be a user account reg setting for all .exes.
