HI,
I'm bamboozled,when I open some windows of a page my window freezes(I'm on XP) and I cannot close it (only with task manager) task manager,says its running ,one time,everything froze(even task manager),I could not even move my mouse and had to manually restart.
Ive tried restoring the computer to an earlier good date,but that does not work.....Ive tried varies online scans,it appears free of a virus (my standard anti-virus is Karspersky)
Windows freezing only happens occasionally,not all the time?
Could someone please help?

What do you mean by "Windows of a page"? Does the problem happen with the same page every time, or is it random? Does the page open fine sometimes, and sometimes it crashes?

Please provide a bit more information. Are you able to get to the internet ok? Have you installed any softwares recently? Do you get any error messages at all?

Its random and I can connect to the intenet and I have not installed any new programs,I'm puzzled.
Its comes as the page is loading?
I think it might have been something that was added on by"McAfee SiteAdvisor".
I will see if the problem persists?

It could be. Try disabling the SiteAdvisor and see if the problem is still there. Let us know what happens

Well...freezing of a page can indicate overheating...can also indicate memory problems...or hard drive space problems.

How much free space on your C: partition? How big is your C: partition?

How much RAM installed? How much virtual memory allocated?

Check your fans? Check the CPU temp in the BIOS?

My C partition is plenty free and I cleaned my fans.
BUT it appears this Mcafee ad on must have been causing the chaos.
When one installs Mcafee,be sure NOT to tick the box that allows them to add anything on,that beta program of theirs appears to clash with other programs.
Thanx anyway!
