Hi , i use windows 7 32bit. And i'm using arduino 0018. But when i start the compiler it stops responding and none of the menu items work . What might be the problem ? Do i need to clear my computer ? Coz its really frustrating to wait for such a long tym to get started. I've installed the FTDI drivers and they work fine.

Does the problem depend on the sketch being compiled?

no, the sketch compiles easily. The problem occurs when i start the software and view my previous sketches and access various menu options like tools and edit

Does you PC have any blue-tooth stuff installed or perhaps other software that utilizes comm ports? Seems I've read similar postings that were traced to problems with the Arduino trying to scan for available comm ports on start up? I think there were even some solutions posted.
