    I've been experiencing lockups when visiting certain websites, this one included. the blue progress bar will progress about 98%, then lock the machine up. When I control/alt/del... it allows me to close out the browser...usually once. If I continue, it locks solid. I have to reboot...go through all the crap..and log back on. this behavior seemed to have started after I installed Noron System Works 2002. I just got through UNinstalling it (except for NAV), and my web access seems to be faster. No lockups yet. Any ideas as to what the problem might be?

    Go to my website and follow the instruction that have the 3 red * behind them. They include cleaning the hard drive and removing programs that are running in the background that are not needed. When you finish you should see a big improvement.

    I also have a list of what most of the programs are that you will find in msconfig.
