My problem is that Windows Xp sp3 suddenly freezes without any visible cause.

There is no error shown.

For example , after I watch a movie and close the media player , if i click on anywhere suddenly the pc frozes. Even though I try to repair it nothing helps , only hitting the restart button helps .

And Once I was watching a movie , i just clicked on the start button and xp froze .. But the movie played till the end . Rest of the items were not responding to clicks .

This occured only recently , but I am sure no big change happened recently.

I dont know whether it is infected.

I scanned with Malwarebytes and SuperAntiSpyware , no detection .
I have Avira and Microsoft Security Essentials.(uptodate, no infection)

Can anyone please help me with this situation.

I posted to your topic in XP...installing two antivirus programs is not recommended by anyone, to my knowledge.

If installed/running at the same time...they are likely to cause problems for the system.

If you have both Avira and Microsoft Security Essentials installed...I suggest that you remove one, run a chkdsk /r on your Windows partition...and see if that alleviates your problems.

Hi Louis ,

I am sure that AV is not the problem , I have it like these for so many months and it went fine .

This issue started this month only .

I have tried check disc also and i periodically do defragment also ( Auslogic )
