    My current pc keeps constantly freezing and is beginning to do it ever more constantly.
    It also has a tendency to reboot aswell.

    Tech Support Guy System Info Utility version 1.0.0.1
    OS Version: Microsoft Windows XP Professional, Service Pack 3, 32 bit
    Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM)2 CPU 6400 @ 2.13GHz, x86 Family 6 Model 15 Stepping 2
    Processor Count: 2
    RAM: 3326 Mb
    Graphics Card: Radeon X1650 Series, 512 Mb
    Hard Drives: C: Total - 298245 MB, Free - 121114 MB; D: Total - 1430796 MB, Free - 472108 MB;
    Motherboard: Acer, MRS600M, ,
    Antivirus: ESET Smart Security 4.2, Updated: Yes, On-Demand Scanner: Enabled

    I have tried to find the cause of this and have a minidump file saying its due to an nt driver.
    I have windows firewall on and run eset smart security and over the last few days have run spybot s&d, super anti spyware, ccleaner, malwarebytes and eset all within safe mode to make sure system is clean.

    Is it possible that my old x1650 needs replaced or possibly my hard drive as it is quite old now ?
    Any help appreciated thanx.

    Defrag drives often enough to keep things in order as i am constantly adding music which needs to be kept in good order as i dj on radio via internet.
    By junk files i can only assume you mean temp files, in which case The ones i mentioned do that.

    yes I see, you have CCleaner.
    I have no other ideas, since I would do the same steps as you did, and I have an even older computer, that runs well most of the time. Let's hope someone knowledgeable will have a bright idea.
