    anytime a .txt (or .log) file is opened ( same as- edited )

    the PC hangs for ~3 sec with a Black Screen,


    ==> goes into the edit mode on the file

    WHILE the desktop images are shown

    in a blocky half-resolution ;

    upon closing the file

    the same 3 second hang occurs

    with black screen ... and

    then the PC is back to "Normal"

    the PC is brand-X with 512RAM 60GB HDD

    1.8 P4 CPU and WinXP <home>

    with all MS Updates applied -- and

    running unpartitioned on the FAT32 HDD.

    This was the mfg setup, and is

    fine since the single-user PC doesn't "really" need NTFS.

    Suggestions!? I get zero hits every tech site i try, and

    zero hits with google for ~2 weeks, so it seems to be

    an obscure glitch.

    TIA // JEFF from Cowtowne
