Hi,
For about a week my pc has been freezing. I am still able to restart it and when I do it works ok again for a while. I thought I would see if any drivers needed updating so I ran DriverGuide and go quite a few that apparently needed to be updated. I updated a few and then restarted my pc. When I try to open driverguide now I just get a message saying - Runtime error 5, invalid procedure or argument. Any help would be appreciated, thanks. I am using xp home sp3.

If you installed software from Driver Guide...I would guess that it is the problem. In that case, I suggest uninstalling such...and reinstalling it, if you feel that it is necessary.

The runtime errors are, as best as I can determine, generated because of a problem with Visual Basic. Some programs are written in VB or utilize VB as a part of the database process.

One proposed solution to these runtime errors...is to download/install the appropriate version VB Runtime from the Microsoft website. In your case, that would be Visual Basic 5.0.

I would also check Event Viewer and see if it offers any clues, looking only at errors approximating the timing of your latest incident.

EDIT: Removed Information items from data posted. I repeat...it is errors listed in Event Viewer which command attention, not information items ~ Hamluis.

Application hang errors...you must double-click on each line item to see what application is involved and the detail of the error.

If a particular application is involved...I suggest uninstalling that application and reinstalling it, it may be damaged or need updating.

The link I provided covering how to use Event Viewer...covers the proper way to use this tool for troubleshooting.
