intel pentium d with 3.20 ghz, and 3.00 gb of ram
230 gb hard drive with 145 gb free
as i mentioned in the description, the computer boots up and runs fine for a good 15 minutes, and then it will just sort of lock up. i can still move the mouse around, but i can't actually do anything. anything i try to open just doesn't respond. anything i try to close doesn't either. when i hit ctrl alt del, task manager does NOT pop up at all. i can't even click on the start button to restart the computer. it will stay like this for 10-15 minutes and then register one or two of the actions i had tried to make (such as opening or closing a window). i recently had the w32 blaster worm on it, but used the instructions i found on this website to get rid of it. i have no idea where to even begin on diagnosing this and figuring out what's wrong.
any help, advice, anything will be greatly appreciated
i apologize if this is in the wrong forum but i didn't really see a more appropriate one.
(thankfully i still have my netbook or else i'd be really screwed with trying to figure this out)
