My computer running XP is freezing up somewhat periodically (daily, sometimes a few times a day). When it freezes, I can't move the mouse, Ctrl Alt Del, or anything. I'm just forced to manually turn it off and restart.
I don't seem to find any link between things I am doing when it freezes. The last two I remember I was surfing the internet, and another time I was watching a movie.
I have AVG which runs on schedule every night, and it hasn't found any infections lately. I also run Malwarebyte's Anti-Malware and CCleaner periodically.
I'm not sure if it is related, but after I restart my Quick launch toolbar is always gone (but easy enough to get back in the start menu properties). It doesn't disappear if I shut down or restart properly.
Any ideas on how to proceed with this?
Thanks in advance
