    Hi Guys ,,, I hope you can help me with this problem.
    I have been freezing up lately while on the internet and when I go to Ctrl alt del to try and reboot. I get a Windows Task Manager Window.
    It has a list of things that I have no idea what it means like.
    msmsgs.exe.
    acrord32.exe
    hbsrv.exe.
    hpofxmo7.exe
    hpostso7.exe
    Iexplore.exe
    navapsvc.exe
    and there are plenty more.
    And when I try to end the process I get a warning window that says : Terminating a process can cause undesired results including loss of data and system instability.
    What does all this mean and what can I do to repair the freezing and this window that comes up......
    Thanks
    Maj

    If you want to reboot from task manager hit the shutdown button on top and then restart.

    That's what happens when you hit CTRL ALT DEL. The task manager window you get with Windows XP is different than the one with previous Windows operating systems (as I'm sure you've noticed). I wouldn't be able to tell you what processes are safe to close, but I'm sure someone here can.
