I had a problem on my computer today which is new to me (and to it ).
I was running several programs, Azureus & Firefox among them, as I usually do, many tabs open in Firefox. Performed an updates for two of the plugins I have in Firefox - pretty sure they were AdBlock Plus and Fast Video Downloads (it's disabled). It asked me to restart Firefox, so I diid, and it froze during loading. Just became non-responsive. Then my entire windows started freezing - the HD light was out cold, showing no activity - until all I could do was reset. And all started working fine again. Now, I am pretty well protected from malware: Avast, Ad-Watch, SpywareGuard, SpywareBlaster, Online Armor, all with the latest updates, I do frequent scans & checks, so it should be quite clean.
Just not sure what to make of it, if there is anything to fix or anything to look out for....
My computer is an AMD Athlon Dual Core x64 3600+2.01GHz, 1GB RAM. My WinXP Pro (Version 2002) is 32 bit, if I am not mistaken.
