    I'd say double check all your cooling fans, on of those might be going bad (thus the smell) and you computer might not be cooling properly.
    I took the one out and cleaned it and the other one is running fine.
    Did you check the processor fan?
    That is the one I took out and cleaned.

    I had to unhook my floppy drive,
    When I went to shut down it kept clicking like it was trying to read it.
    I have never used it.

    Well with the smell and your computer slowing down so much I'd have to believe your processor might have a problem like a crack etc......In task manager what is eating up all your system resources?

    No task manager is ok as is all other processes.
    The noise after shutting is the power supply fan.
    Maybe something is wrong there.

    Last time I smelled a burning smell my motherboard crash a couple days later. I would almost bet that yours is about to crash.

    Do you have another computer in the house?
    If you do try switching out the power supply.

    Backup your data and test the data
    on
    another computer. You could be screwed.


    Go Vikings!

    Everything is screwy now.
    Now sound, cannot double click on desktop items, things take longer to open.
    This is pissing me the off.

    When I turn my PC off the little light keeps blinking fast and PC is making some little squeaking noises.

    Ultra do you have a Dell, they have had problems with the capacitors on the motherboards, the top of the caps will crack open and vent some of the creamy pcb filling.

    No, it is not a Dell.

    I does smell like a burnt cap.
    I used to do electrical maintence and I remember changing out ballasts on lighting.
    Smelled just like that when caps blew.
