I had to reinstall windows xp professional home edition on a Dell Latitude D800. It works perfectly for the moment. The instant I try to install netzero dial up internet it starts freezing and I can't even get it to connect to the internet. When I cancel out of the netzero install/setup, it will still freeze just by clicking on something as simple as the start menu. I have reinstalled windows a few times, and every time I get the same result. Does anyone know what could be causing it to do that? Is it possible that the xp professional home edition is too much for the laptop to handle? Or is it that I might not have all the drivers installed that I need? Any help is greatly appreciated.

Hi Cappi106, you said you reinstalled XP but did you formatt it first? You also say as soon as you try to install.............the software, have you first installed all of your drivers? e.g. audio, video and network drivers? Here is the link to Dell, you will have to go through and find what you need.

Sorry it took me so long to respond. I had to have Dell send me the right Windows disk. I had talked to Dell and I have everything installed correctly now. All drivers and utilities. However, now I have The Sims, the internet and Norton Anti Virus on it, and since I have installed the internet and anti-virus it freezes up again constantly. It freezes so bad you can't even click the start menu.

IMO, most Norton products are problematic to too many people. I suggest you uninstall it use another AV and firewall.

(Have installed only one.)
Avast Home Edition Antivirus Freeware (I use this)
AVG Free Edition Antivirus
AntiVir Personal Edition Classic Freeware
BitDefender 8 Free Edition

Firewalls (Have installed only one.)
Zone Alarm Free for Personal Use (I use this)
SyGate Personal Firewall 5.6
OutPost Firewall Free
Kerio Free Personal Firewall

Active Anti-spyware (Can have all installed)
SpywareGuard - Tutorial (I use this)
SpywareBlaster - Tutorial (I use this)
Microsoft Defender (2000,and XP only)
