    i have been having trouble with my computer lately. i run windows xp sp1. i did have sp2 installed, but i uninstalled it thinking that it was part of the problem. my computer freezes every so often for no good reason. most often, when itunes is running -- but it doesn't have to be. i have a 170 gb hd and 300+ mb of ram. i tried installing an older version of itunes without results.

    i have since formatted and reinstalled windows -- everything clean, from scratch. i reloaded my music from my laptop (a mac), reinstalled programs i need like firefox, aim, and itunes. another factor in this may be that i switched to wireless internet before the freezes began. i started out using a belkin wireless card, and have since switched to linksys without results.

    on that note, i have checked for irq conflicts, disabled my ethernet modem, removed my dial-up modem, and changed the slot of my wireless modem. should i try removing the ethernet modem?

    any ideas or pointers will be appreciated.

    I think it may be something your installing. Because if reformatting didn't work it may be a software conflict. Or, you may have a bad stick or sticks of memory. hd could be going. Try removing the wireless card and see how it goes. It's really hard to pinpoint 1 exact problem.
