Hi epdscoops and Welcome to Bleeping Computer.

How large is your hard drive and how much free space do you have?
Right click on your C drive in Windows and select Properties to get this information.

Select Start, All Programs, Accessories, System Tools, Disk CleanUp to Empty your Recycle Bin and Remove Temporary Internet Files.
In System Tools go to Disk CleanUp, More Options, System Restore and remove all but the latest System Restore point.
Run Disk Defragmenter.
Follow this procedure in the order given.

~Edit~ This problem is sometimes caused by out-of-date video drivers.
Go to the Web site run by the manufacturer of your video card and download, then install, the latest (non-beta) drivers for your video card.

Or you can try the following:
Go to Start and then click Control Panel.
Click Display (in classic view of Windows XP), click the Settings tab, and then click Advanced.
Click the Performance or Troubleshooting tab (depending on your operating system), and then reduce hardware acceleration a notch at a time until your system stabilizes.

Thanks for posting this TMack. I feel it's better to use your third suggestion because I've frequently tried the first option, and my video card is seven months old, (is that considered old? :thumbsup:) If I have any more problems, I'll let you know.
