hello, im running windows Me and lately it i am having problems with it. some times my computer will just freeze up. it does not matter if i am just idling and not running any programs or if im listening to music. i tried to download some new updates from windows, but when it restarts it says that it could not load and i got a message saying"windows could not upgrade the file%1 from %2" that repeats it self for like 4 lines and then is says. "windows could not upgrade one or more system files before starting. what can i do to fix this problem?
thanks

If you can, run a on-line virus scan at http://housecall.trendmicro.com

***

Ensure you have a firewall running. A excellent free one (Sygate) can be had from http://download.com. Enter, Sygate, in the Search box and press Enter. You have to be on-line to register Sygate during its installation.

***

Use System Restore to roll your computer back to a date to before when your computer worked right. Before the error(s) started occurring.

To start System Restore, click Start, point to Programs, point to Accessories, point to System Tools, and then click System Restore. Or, in the Help and Support main screen, click Use System Restore under Fix a problem.
