Hi Guys,
First I should introduce myself as a novice so please talk to me in simple terms. I am running Windows XP Home. Intel pentium4 processor 515.with 250 GB SATA Hard Drive. When I switch on, I get the desktop come up, I click on the internet icon and get connected. When I either try to check my email or get onto a site the whole thing freezes. I press crl alt delete and am told that the program is not responding. The only way to shut down is to switch off at the mains. I need to reboot and go through the whole proceedure about six times before I can access anything properly. What can I do? I have "Avast" anti virus. I've tried most of the recommended reg cleaners and Spyware removers.
Another thing I need help with is how can I get rid of that annoying "found new hardware" window it's driving me barmy.
One last thing something seems to be removing icons from my systems tray. Have I been Hijacked?

to me it sounds like a virus or something like that, or as mentioned something wrong with the disk, try and run chkdsk -pr, might take a lil while, if it's not helping, unplug your internet cable and use anti spyware and such, spybot is a good one to use

Hi
Thanks for replying. Yes I've run chkdsk and antivirus and Ad adware & spydocter but I haven't tried it with internet disconnected. I'll give it a try
Thanks
