Hi all. I read the pinned introductory material and conducted several searches, but I couldn't find anything that seems to match my problem. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated and I want to thank you for your time.
The problem is that fairly frequently - particularly with folders over 5 megabytes in size - when I try to move a folder into another folder the system will automatically reboot. For example, many times if I try to move "folder A" into "folder B" it will crash the system. It just happened a few minutes ago and the folder in I was moving was only 10 megabytes in size. Of course, I can copy and paste the folders in question, but I'd rather be able to simply drag them to the appropriate location. There is no error message. The system simply reboots. It doesn't do it EVERY time - although with really large files it invariably will. I can't discern any common denominator between the folders in question. Some are Word documents, some are photos and PDFs, etc. I know some Vista users are having this problem as well.
I'm running Windows XP SP2 Home Edition on a Hewlett Packard Pavilion a1410y desktop. I'm using Zone Alarm's free firewall and Avast free antivirus. Specs for the PC are as follows (the best I could dig them up):
- Intel® Celeron® D 352 (3.2GHz, 533MHz FSB)
- Memory: 1.43 Gigs RAM
- 80GB 7200 rpm Ultra DMA Hard Drive
- 48x max. CD-RW/DVD-ROM combo drive (48x32x16x48x)
- 2 USB, front audio ports
-Video Card: ATI Radeon Xpress 200 Series
- Integrated ATI Radeon Xpress HyperMemory
- Integrated 5.1 Capable Sound w/ front audio ports
