    Ok, I didn't see anything that matched my problems, so I'm posting it here.

    First off

    WinXP Home
    HP Pavilion XL753 (old, I know)
    1 Gig Ram

    My computer will freeze for a full minute to two minutes, and then free up for about 5 seconds, and then freeze again. I lose all interenet connection and most programs I run crash.

    Here is my HiJackThis log..any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks for the info.
    Try booting to safe mode and typing a word document or run a virus check for a few minutes. Try to 're-create' the problem. If it freezes in safe mode then we might have to look at your hardware.

    I see you have Apache installed.
    What happens if you go into services and disable/shutdown the Apache and Mysql services ?

    Have you installed any new hardware/software recently? Try uninstalling if so.

    Unplug any non-critical devices so you left with your keyboard, mouse, & monitor only. See if the problem still exists. (most likely, but this will eliminate hardware).

    Next steps are looking into your running programs. Check your event log (Start>run>type 'eventvwr.msc'>hit enter)
    Check under Application and System logs and see if there are any errors pointing to a specific application or file. Sometimes there are, sometimes not.

    Next step would be to disable startup items via 'start>run>type 'msconfig'>enter> click on startup tab. A few at a time and see if you find a culprit. Let me know if you need help with any of these steps.
