My PC started freezing constantly the other day. Sometimes I am able to run basic applications without a problem, but any time I try to run mutliple applications or use the net, it freezes and I have to restart. If i free up some disk space by getinf rid of old files and software and then follow the process in the Windows XP Repair Guide, is the problem of freezing likely to be fixed, or does it sound like a different issue?

Im pretty sure its not a malware problem, as Ive scanned multiple times without receiving any threats.

Thanks!

Hi

First we'll need some more information before we can give you a hand.

you're askign about creating more space. Do you think you're out of space? How much free space do you have?

Did you do somethign before this started?
Install some application? Change something? do an update?

Right now there are still so many possibilities.
Normally if windows runs out of space, it will give you an alert.

Maybe you can take a look in the event viewer (you can find it by going to the control panel, and then to administrative tools, then event viewer). See if recently there are some errors, shown with a red cross. Most interesting woudl be the system and application log.

also you might wanna open up the case and clean it out....get a can of compressed air and blow out all the dust bunnies and gremlins....make sure to hold all the fans when you blow the air on them so that you don't burn out the bearings....sometimes heat can lead to lockups etc..
