From time to time various programs/applications will freeze-up and/or I will get a "Not Responding" message. Then the screen peels. I have used xp_taskbar repeatedly but it only works for a limited time. Any suggestions? Thanks.

This could be a heat issue, have you checked to see if you have a build up of dust on the heat sink and fan on the CPU?

If this isn't the case, look in the Event Viewer to see what errors appear at the time that you are experiencing these freezes. All events are log with a date and time.

Start> right click on My Computer> Manage> Event Viewer.

Be sure that you choose System.

The error will appear in the far left column and will appear as a red dot with a white X inside. Each of the columns has a title at the top of them, the column that you want is the Event column. When you see an error follow it to the right across the page to the event column, there will be a set of numbers in there, this is the error code. If you right click on the error code a drop menu will appear, click on Properties, another page will open which will contain a description of the error.

Please post the error codes and descriptions back in this topic.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
