Every 2-3 minutes my pc freezes for 5-10 seconds

I uninstalled the programs I don't use, I used CCleaner, and I defraged a couple of times noticing that it usually stops around 20%, aslo installed 2 gigs of ram

Thank You for your help

What sort of Anti-Virus do you have? Do you have two Anti-Virus programs? If you do, uninstall one of them as they will conflict and will cause your symptoms.

You can also open Windows Task Manager (Ctrl + Alt + Del) and click on the PROCESS tab. Look for what process is running high numbers in the CPU column while your computer freezes.

At least those are two ideas of where to begin.

No processes seem to go up when the pc freezes

Do you mean that defrag did not run to completion?

If so, that would be indicative of some sort of hard drive situation, IMO.

Ok I ran the defragmenter to get the message

"Defragmentation is complete for: HP_PAVILION (C:)

Some files on this volume could not be defragmented.
Please check the defragmentation report for the list of these files."

Last % I saw was 14% complete

Just a tip: Run chkdsk /r before defragging and results will probably be better.

As for the files not being able to be defragged...check that list. Some are OK (pagefile and probably other system files) but inability to defrag routine data files (IMO) would be an indication of corruption and/or bad sectors on the hard drive (another reason for running chkdsk /r before defrag).

Someone else may have better guesses than mine :thumbsup:.

I did chkdsk /r then defraged and it still stopped at 14%, the files that didnt get defraged are .avi, not much theres only a couple of them so I don't think this matters

I don't normally use XP's defrag function (I use Perfect Disk) but I do run it on occasion.

I have no problem defragging video files (.avi and .mpg for me) or anything else on my two systems...XP defrag or PD.

I think I've said all that I can think of.

I'm going to download a trial version of perfect disk and see if it helps

EDIT: I defraged with perfect disk and it says its in better health then before, but it still freezes
anymore ideas?
