I've posted my hijackthis log and haven't received any replies to it in another forum so I guess I must do a fresh install of XP because doing a pc restore doesn't help the problem. My problem is constant freezing to the point I can't do much on the computer anymore. The diagnostics says everyhting is fine. How do I do a fresh install of xp? Is there any sequence of reinstalling items, etc... PLMK Thanks

Hi, be aware that there is a huge backlog in the HJT-forum, due to the fact that there are very many with problems and only a certain number of people here at BC that are qualified to assist to the problems. The backlog can be more as a week.
You will get a reply, if you didn't receive one until now that does not mean your PC is hopeless.

If however you decide you don't want to wait and want to go through with the reformat, please post back.

regards, Elise
