"Crashes" is rather ambiguous, IMO.

Exactly what happens?

Does the system lose functionality...reboot...what exactly happens?

System manufacturer and model?

Any onscreen error messages?

sorry for the lack of detail - systems hangs up then I get a dr watson error in regards to user32.dll. I am able to browse and see the start menu in explorer and it seems to all be there.

Dell Optiplex running windows xp pro

I can task manager and kill dr watson and then it is usable again unti lthe start menu is clicked.
