Although, I will add that I was told I needed to update my version of XP -but when I downloaded the update it said that my service pack 3 was more recent than the update. So that is definitely not the problem.
I thought I was replying in another user's thread LOL@me. And now I can't find a way to delete this topic so I might as well make it useful....
The issue is that I get a WIN32 error that it has encountered a problem and needs to close with the option to send an error report, which I usually do. Not long after that happens (it happens randomly, doesn't seem to matter what I am doing or if I am even using my pc) then random processes stop functioning properly, up to and including an entire system lock up. It usually begins with my media player/ any music/sound device or page because it tells me that I have no speakers connected and the sound just stops working. Or my browser will either crash or not load at all, I can double click the icon and the little hour glass pops up, then disappears but the browser never opens. By the time I realize it is happening again I can't even shut it down properly. Just have to hold the power button and reboot that way. Then it seems to function fine until the next time I get the WIN32 error.
I've run virus scans, malware scans, had my ISP tech people check into it and no one seems to be able to figure out the problem. Any thoughts would be grand. Thanks ^_^
