Hi, XP Pro SP3, dual core Intel, Optima laptop.


For about a year now, I need to reboot every 10+ hours to get Thunderbird email receiving and the web browser seeing websites correctly.


When it goes bonkers in a browser, it's like the pages have been striped of all CSS and no images show up. Just plain white pages with text.


Thunderbird doesn't receive new emails until after a re-boot.


After a reboot things are fine for 10+hours.


I've tried different browsers Opera, I.E, Firefox... cache is cleaned each close.


Tried different firewalls. Zone Alarm, Sunbelt .. and currently PrivateFirewall7.0


Seems like a network problem that kicks in after a certain amount of time.


When it's bonkers, I've tried the laptop onboard wifi card, then a 300N dongle..but no fix.


Tried a different ADSL router, but no fix. Rebooted the routers each time, no fix.


AVG anti-virus isn't reporting anything odd.


I use AVS (Advanced System Care).


I suspect the XP system security certificates, network or such, are the issue .. and if so, I don't know where to start.


Anyone able to help?

G'day Dave, and Welcome to BC !


(Aussie here too )


 System Restore.......have you tried Restoring to a earlier time/date..?


Just on the off chance that you have backups.......do you have one from prior to this trouble starting....?


It is my guess that a setting, somewhere, has changed......hence the reason I have suggested System Restore.


You problem is not "common"...google search does not show anything recent.


I dont have much more.....i have not used xp or windows of any flavor for a longgg time......I now use Linux, and just dont have those problems anymore !

Condobloke ...Outback Australian  fed up with Windows antics...??....LINUX IS THE ANSWER....I USE LINUX MINT 18.3  EXCLUSIVELY.

Hi mate, thanks for the reply.


No older (Macrium) backups before the problem started.


I ran XP's SFC (system file check) but hasn't fix it.


I just had to reboot. 4.30pm here, last reboot was about 12am last night so about 16 hours without issue this cycle.
