Hi Everyone,

I have an old Gateway computer with a P4 2.0 ghz CPU and 2Gb RAM. This computer runs fine if I am performing any basic task but when I access the internet through my Browser it gets frozen or locked when I do something like a Video or Game online. I was using IE and it would freeze so I started to use Firefox and it did the same thing. I ran Malware Bytes and removed 2 trojans and still the problem persist. I am thinking that I need to replace the video card but the Graphics card is integrated to the MB. I would like to know if anyone has ever experienced this problem. If so, what was done to fix it and what was the end result? What recommendations do you have towards this problem? Thank you all in advance for your help. If need be, I can provide a Highjackthis log or something that might help you guys help me. Thank you again and hope to here from you all soon.

Frank :thumbsup:

PS. I am running old Windows XP Home on it.

Well folks, I was able to determine the problem. You see the computer was upgraded by the previous owner into a 2 gig ram system but the system was made to go to a maximum of 1 gig in 512mb sticks multiples of two and there is 2 sticks of 1 gig PC2100 DIMM chips. All the spyware and any viruses that were in there were eradicated and I have even reinstalled the OS and all it's original software. However the video problem persist only when I go online or use the Media Player to view a video. I haven't removed the ram sticks yet and will be replacing them with new 512mb sticks as soon as they arrive in the mail from EBAY. I hope this will fix the video problem, if not I will come back into this forum and repost or reply to this problem. Thank you all for your help in advance.

Frank
