That was why I done a fresh install, to rule out software as I booted up in safe mode and removed all software that could be a problem, so I reformatted and haven't installed anything.
Say if I click the start button on the taskbar I can browse and open up a window, like my computer but then If I try and select the taskbar again it freezes, but mouse can move.
It happens regardless of what is open so It must be hardware related but I am not sure if its memory related, the hard drive, the fan or motherboard so is it possible for me to do tests, like the hard drive test for each component?
I just downloaded a live linux cd, if that runs smoothy, would that mean the hardware is fine and it could be a problem with the windows xp instal?
