Thanks for the reply. I was thinking about that also, but when I setup the account on a different computer it connects fine, its sync. with the server and everything. This was a users laptop. His account is what started it. I logged on as myself and connected for a short period and after a few tries it would not connect at all.

I also noticed in the task manager that the java.exe was taking most of the resouces. But I could not get rid of it. Thats when I wiped the hard drive, but it was still doing the same thing. I was thinking since wiping the HD didnt work it might have a corrupted Bios. I cleared the bios to the factory default and still nothing
