    Hi Guys,
    I am rather new at this forum and I am experiencing nearly the same "freeze effect" other guys in the forum had.
    I am using a DELL laptop (lattitude 110L Intel Dothan 1.6 GHz; 512RAM;40GB HD).
    The freezing happened while booting up and further when trying to run anything.
    I saw an article from Microsoft that said to do the following steps:
    1) Remove unneccessary files/application
    2) Run Antivirus
    3) Defragment the HD
    4) Run a Registry Mechanics

    Nothing helped!!
    The computer is only useful under SAFE MODE(with Networking), then it works just with the speed I was used to.

    I downloaded the MEMtest, a forumer advised, but don't know how to play the *.iso file

    Should I format the HD anyway?

    I realize you are new and don't mean to do this, but you need to start a new post so as not to detract from the user here and his problems...I'll ask a Mod to set you up on your own and welcome to TSG.
