I have a really annoying problem in my system.
I use Windows XP pro, with SP2 and the latest updates / hotfixes
I donít know what I have changed exactly, but a few months ago, my system (After YEARS of resuming very nicely from hibernation) started to FREEZE COMPLETELY after coming back to life.
This happened after some UPDATES from Microsoft, but I COULD NOT isolate what / IF.
I have isolated the problem: it occurs OVER the FIRST network access that is performed. Updating anti-virus, Getting mail, browsing. Ping command does not freeze the system, though.
- AntiSpywares (realtime, online). I use AVG Free anti-virus and Iím behind a router.
- Windows file checker utility (with Scannow)
- Making a BAT routine to Hibernate, disabling the Network, Hibernating, and enabling it back after resume, with no success.
Change network drivers many times (I now have the latest REALTEK RTL8139/810x drivers
Change network drivers configuration (wake up on) to enable / disable.
Enabling / disabling all NETWORK devices (though I installed them AFTER the problem started), like IR, BlueTooth, and Firewire adapters (still disabled)
I could use all the help.
