Hi, I use a Windows XP
My computer always freezes up within five minutes of my booting it, forcing me to restart my computer constantly. Whenever I start my computer up, I get at least seven error messages from different things stating the same thing: "This application has failed to start because rtutils.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem." At about the time I close out the last of the error messages, I have about one minute before the computer freezes, so I cannot successfully run an antivirus or spyware scanner.
Also possibly related to this problem: I no longer have any internet connection with my computer. It's completely shot. I cannot even open the "My Network Places" window.
I started experiencing both problems simultaneously three days ago, after I had left my computer on sleep mode for about 5 hours.
Can anyone help? If you need any more information, please tell me, and I will provide it to the best of my ability.
