I am running windows xp on a Gateway 1.8 with 256MB ram since I set up the 2nd user when I go to do anything such as compose an email message the computer freezes mid word and after about 3 to 4 minutes comes out of it and I can type possibly another 5-10 characters and it freezes again. Now writing this it hasn't frozen seems to just be in either mail program Outlook or Outlook express, which I have tried both thinking it was one or the other causing the conflict. Is there a setting or something I am missing?? It took me 10 minutes to compose approx 10 line email :thumbsup: driving me nuts :flowers:
thanks!!

1. Run chkdsk on your system.

2. Defrag the system.

3. Run malware programs for adware/spyware.

4. Run AV program.

Check Event Viewer for errors in the Application tab before doing any of the above. Post any errors which appear.

Do you have a antivirus? Out dated antivirus is short of useless. Both of the programs I have listed are free and very good. Do you run antispyware? I have listed 4 antispyware programs. cCleaner is a cleanup utility for temp files, and cookies. I have also listed two firewall program either of which is free and superior to windows firewall.


AVG Free Edition Antivirus(I personally use)
Avast Home Edition Antivirus Freeware

Microsoft AntiSpyware Beta
Spybot
AdAware SE Personal Edition
Ewido Security Suite - 14 day trial

cCleaner

Sygate 5.4(I personally use)
Zone Alarm
"2007 & 2008 Windows Shell/User Award"

I forgot to list my virus and anti spy programs
they are:
Avast Anti Virus
Spyguard
Spyblaster
webroot Spysweeper
Ewido
Spybot Search and Destroy
Ad-Aware SE PErsonal

I run these on a scheduled task and they are updated before each scan. Usually bi weekly on some and weekly on others and daily on one or 2.
I have included a log of the event viewer although not sure if I have done it correctly as I have never used it before. so if not correct just explain what I need to do ? Thanks!!!!
OKAY now while typing this post it went fine til got to the I have nev and then it froze for approx 3 min before I could type the rest here , it then snaps out of it and I can type fine so it does do it in other applications?
thanks for the help thus far!!!

Please right click on the errors in the log (this looks like only one of the 3 logs in Event Viewer) and select properties.

Let us know what the Properties dialog says about each one (starting with the last error first - and just go until you get tired, it won't take long :thumbsup: Seriously, I'd go back as far as the last time the error occurred - there's a lot of errors in this log and it may take a bit o' fixin' to make it right.
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.
