Hey guys, Im running winXP pro 2002. Its on a Pentium III 1Ghz with 512 ram. The problem im having which just started today is when i start up after about 10 min or so of use it seems to just freeze for about 4-5min then continues on at its usual speed like nothing ever happened. During the freeze time the mouse cursor still works but you cant click on anything, is this because im running XP on a slow comp or hardware/software problems.
Please help as exams are coing up very soon and its stressing me out.
Thanks for all your help guys

Hello and welcome to Geeks to Go!

Please download and run hijackthis Do a scan and then save a log. Take the log and ATTACH IT (do not post) to your next post. In order to attach it, you will either need to change the .log extension to .txt, or you will have to put the log into a compressed (zipped) folder.

We do not like to post hijackthis logs in sections other than the malware forum as we do not want to encourage people to post malware issues in this forum.

I am not looking for malware. I am looking for what programs or combinations of programs might cause this behavior. If I notice any malware, I will redirect you to the malware forum.
