Im running windows XP SP2,

and for some reason whenever i attempt to play or stream a quicktime movie my computer will freeze. Well it does not actually freeze as i found out after waiting 10minutes, but its slows to a pace where the mouse moves every 10seconds. The computer resumes normal speeds once the quicktime window has been closed, but it is quicker to just re-boot.

Does anyone knwo why this is happenening and how to fix it?

Cheers. Sam.

Click start, all programmes, accessories, system tools to run disc clean up, then from system tools, run disc defragmenter.

Click start then run, type sfc /scannow then press enter, you need the XP CD and Windows File Protection will show a blue onscreen progress bar, when the bar goes, reboot

Download and install Tune Up 2006 Trial

Run Tune Up Registry Clean Up

Click Optimize and Improve to run Reg Defrag, which will take a few minutes and need a reboot. You should disable the antivirus programme to run this and check it is running after the reboot

After the reboot, click optimize then system optimizer to optimize the computer, select computer with an internet connection from the drop down menu, this also requires a reboot

After the reboot, click optimize then system optimizer to accelerate downloads, select the speed just above your actual connection speed, this requires a reboot
