    Hello:

    I have a Compaq 1692 Laptop with 192mb Ram, 6gig HD, Win XP Pro, and an AMD K6-2 466 Processor. Every time I open Windows Explorer or My Computer, the computer locks up. I get a Not Responding on ctfmon and explorer.exe. It works great until I run either of these programs. I have had XP on it for about month and it started doing this 3 days ago.

    Thanks

    Thanks:

    I ended up formatting and doing a fresh install, that fixed it.
