Hi! I just recently installed 256 MB of RAM and Windows XP. My computer has started freezing a lot lately. I have to turn computer off and back on. Help.

Let's take a look at what's running. Is 256MB all the RAM you have? Because XP does require a good amount of RAM.

Click here to download HJTsetup.exe: http://www.thespykiller.co.uk/files/HJTSetup.exe
Save HJTsetup.exe to your desktop.

Double click on the HJTsetup.exe icon on your desktop.
By default it will install to C:\Program Files\Hijack This.
Continue to click Next in the setup dialogue boxes until you get to the Select Addition Tasks dialogue.
Put a check by Create a desktop icon then click Next again.
Continue to follow the rest of the prompts from there.
At the final dialogue box click Finish and it will launch Hijack This.
Click on the Do a system scan and save a log file button. It will scan and then ask you to save the log.
Click Save to save the log file and then the log will open in notepad.
Click on "Edit > Select All" then click on "Edit > Copy" to copy the entire contents of the log.
Come back here to this thread and Paste the log in your next reply.
DO NOT have Hijack This fix anything yet. Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required.

Log doesn't look bad. Although, you have no anti-virus protection.

And no Windows Service Packs installed. How come?

I would suggest that you find out why you can't or haven't installed service packs.

When you go to Windows updates, what happens?

No antivirus program installed and still using the original version of Windows XP? :eek:

Practically every program that you have running in the background(which appears in the O4 list in your log) can be disabled from doing so.
