    hello. i have this problem with my other computer that it freezes periodically (sometimes even after rebooting it again). and nothing else helps but rebooting the computer again. then i can work with a limited time and again the pc freezes. what may cause this kind of behaviour? i have Win XP Pro Corp and have run all the reg cleaners and system checkers and spyware removers but nothing seem to help. if anyone can help me out, please dont be afraid LOL. these are the specs of my pc can you help me please?

    ok so you have 256M and 64M of memory. i dont know if your motherboard likes mixing memory.
    you could try a memory test from here
    http://www.memtest86.com/

    you could try taking out the 64M and see how it runs with just the 256M memory.

    after the above if its still running bad and the memory tests are OK

    how much free diskspace do you have?

    you may also have spyware so it could be good to post a hjt log


    HIJACK THIS:


    Download and copy hijackthis to its own folder , it makes backups so keeping them separate and available can be useful.

    Note the Spyware tools websites are very often under attack and so I have provided more than 1 location to download from:

    http://www.tomcoyote.org/hjt/
    http://209.133.47.200/~merijn/downloads.html
    http://www.thespykiller.co.uk/
    http://www.majorgeeks.com/download3155.html
    http://aumha.org/downloads/hijackthis.exe
    http://www.thewhities.com/
    http://www.sherrylynn.us/privacypolicy (this has an older version 1.97 - if you can not get to any of the above sites)

    Close all open windows and open Hijack This. Click “Scan”. When the scan is finished (it only takes a second), the scan button will change to “Save Log”.
    Click on “Save Log” and then save it to NotePad.
    Click on “Edit” – “Select all” – “copy” and then “paste” into the thread.
    DO NOT FIX ANYTHING wait advice from one of the many security experts in this forum.

    I currently do not have the skill/competence to advise and poor advice can be far more damaging to your PC with this software, and so I will be unable to add any advice on the log and so will nolonger be replying to your post with regards to the HJT issue, so please have patience and wait for one of the secruity experts to provide further detailed advice

    i will however, be notified when you post the log

    Do you have an uninterupted power supply? I had the same problem for months after I upgraded to XP. I tried all the solutions posted on this forum...updated drivers, tested memory, checked cooling, etc. Nothing worked. I moved earlier this summer and the problem disappeared. I suspect there may have been power spikes in the outlet I had my computer plugged into.
