Program Problems

Hi i didnt really know where to put this. but i figured applications was the closest place for it.
I am running a AMD athlon 3200, 2.3Ghz,512mb, 200GB, radeon ATI 9600
I have had it for well over a year now with no problems, however just recently its got really annoying.
if i restart the pc, it works fine for about half an hour. But any time after that, programs that i click do not open. For a example if i turn the pc on, then go and get a drink, come back and try to open internet explorer, the egg timer loads for a dew seconds, but internet explorer doesnt happen. As i say the pc works fine as soon as i restart it. This happens with other programs as well.
Sometimes if i open the task manager, and end the program process, then the program opens, but more often than not this doesnt work and the pc freezes.
A while back the pc over heated and i got alot of blue screens, but since i put a new heatsink in this problem seems to be solved and it worked fine up until recently.
Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated
thanks, Liam

Hi LiAM,,
It could be that the original overheating has caused a more serious ongoing problem.

Download everest home edition,, and get it to check thru your temperatures etc,,
Worth a try, as it may give you an idea of any hardware problems.

go here and download

I am taking it that you have already ran your antivirus, adware and spyware programs to rule out any nasties that have made their way onto your machine ??? If not,,,then make this your first job.
Post back with your findings,,,
Good luck,,,
