    I recently built a new computer and ever since I installed Windows XP the system completely freezes after 5-10 min. I tried taking out both sticks of ram ( not at the same time obviously) both DVD burners, both HD's, and my network card, assuming it was a hardware problem, nothing helped. I loaded Linux Ubuntu and it worked flawlessly, the only problem is I need windows to run Photoshop (a must have for my job). Any suggestions would be most helpful.
