    The other day, I installed Service Pack 1 for Windows Vista. Since about 2 days after I did, applications have started freezing randomly. I'm not sure it's the SP that's doing this to me though, cause it was a few days after I installed it and not right away. In Task Manager, there are less processes, which is weird. I could be doing anything and the application will freeze out of nowhere and I have to restart my computer to fix it. It's a hassle because sometimes I'm in the middle of something and it does this to me. Has anyone else experienced this problem? Does anybody know if there is a fix for it?

    This can be caused by a host of different things.

    Here's what I would do first:

    1. Scan for viruses or any type of malware.
    2. Update all of my drivers for my network card, video card, sound card.
    3. Uninstall any programs I either don't need or don't recognize in Add/Remove programs
