    Hi my friend just bought a brand new computer and I dont really know all the specs but the thing is everything works fine untill they try to open up three or more web pages then everything locks up and they have to do the infamous ctrl+alt+del:eek:. We scaned for viruses and adaware/spyware but nothing came up so I dont know what the deal is, it only freezes when opening three or more web pages :( . Anyone have any clue cause I dont :p

    My guess they are running out of memory and should upgrade the amount.

    Also make sure they installed the latest Windows updates, which may fix the problem as well.
