    Im working on an HP that was shipped with Windows ME.
    The computer keeps freezing up. When it locks up it wont "unlock." (No ctrl+alt+del, no mouse, no keyboard, etc) I installed Norton Anti-virus and updated and scanned for viruses. No viruses. I know ME has had lots of problems. Should I remove ME and put on something else. Or is there a patch or update i can do. I have another machine doing something similar (check for another post). Please, if you have any ideas.....post.

    When do the freezes occur? Have you done an Ad-aware scan to detect and remove bundled spyware, and have you eliminated unnecessary programs from startup?

    Let's have a look at what is loading at start. Run msinfo32 and click on "software environment" and "startup programs". Then click edit>select all>edit>copy and paste the copied text in a reply.

    Here's the text from msinfo: I added it as an attatchment b/c it looked to messy to copy/paste.

    No spy or ad-ware that I see on a quick look.

    Here are some items that I think you could do just fine without, you can uncheck them in msconfig>startup

    delayrun.exe
    loadqm.exe
    moneyexpress.exe
    wkdetect.exe
    qbagent.exe

    You may also want to review some of the hp related stuff.

    You can identify and learn more about these items and decide whether you want them, by reviewing the info at this site:
