Hello there, can anyone help me, I;m operating windows XP using broadband connection but applications will not close most of the time. They just hang there even when i do CTRL ALT Del it just brings up a box with "cancel now" but when i click it, it makes no difference. The app will eventually close 5 -10 minutes later but it is so annoying. I run anti virus and spywear all the time and delete anything that shows up

any help would be great

Go into msconfig via the run command. Look in the startup and see what’s running. Remove anything not needed like you anti-virus and or firewall. Restart the computer and see if it makes a difference
