    Alright so ive gone through my computer and scanned through everything with the Uniblue Powersuite and got rid of a lot of errors a lot of useless files etc and my computer is still -really- slow and freezes at the use of any application. It eventually comes back to full functionality but it dips in and out of going -really- slow and pure frozen. This is a really recent event with my computer and I have no idea what is doing it. I get blue screens sometimes here and there and my other thread states one of them, which I still have not figured out, although it is less frequent now.

    Another BSOD that I get every now and this is the one below this.

    STOP: c000021a (Fatal System Error)

    I have no idea what causes this but it has come up during scandisk or just randomly through windows.

    Im really at a deadend here and Im curious if anyone knows anything that could help me out.

    As I said this is a very recent group of issues within the last 4-5 days probably and before it was working just fine.

    I put "STOP: c000021a" into a Google search. Many references came up, including the above.

    Thank you, but that is for windows NT not windows XP home edition so i dont know if that'd apply to me. Id like to avoid reinstalling windows, like a few places have suggested so Im just seeing if there are any alternative solutions.
