I've had a problem with my computer for the past month. The computer inevitably locks up after using internet explorer or Firefox for any significant length of time. It doesn't completely freeze up, because you can still use the mouse, however at that point, no directories, programs, or web browsers will open up. After turning the computer on and loading windows, I sometimes get an error message that states: ctfmon.exe - Application Error, The application failed to initialze properly. I ran Malwarebytes and it found one exploit, which I deleted. I'm using Windows XP. How should I proceed to fix this?
Thanks for your help,
