Recently, my PC started locking up for no reason and emitting a beeping sound, forcing me to reboot manually. It started occuring more often, forcing me to run two repair installations of XP with no success. After running a virus scan with Avast (which I really should have done first I suppose,) my PC caught and neutralized the Win32:Kuang2 trojan in my Firefox installation folder. The problem seems to be gone right now, or less occurent anyway. However, I'm still not out of the woods yet...
Following this lock up issue, I tried to connect my PSP to my PC to transfer some MP3s. What's odd is that the system detected it as new hardware each time I connected it and refused to display it at all. To see if it was just my PSP acting up or a problem with a device, I tried it on my other PC, which yielded no problems. I then connected my iPod to the faulty system, which wasn't detected properly either.
Thanks for your time.
