First i installed a program called Driver Reviver that searches for out of date drivers and updates them. I was having problems with audio skipping while i would browse the internet, but now that issue is fixed since the drives have been updated.
Second I went into my registry and C Drive and found some old programs that were still on there and deleted some of them. Stuff like Aol, Real Arcade, Alltunes that i thought i had uninstalled long ago.
Third I accidentally uninstalled all of my windows components from add/remove. I was having trouble running the Google Updater program every time it would try to connect to a browser to show me the latest updates it would try to connect to MSN Explorer instead of my preferred browser. So i wanted to uninstall MSN Explorer but accidentally deleted all my Windows XP components. That issue is also fixed now.
The problem now was that my computer kept freezing up randomly at least 3 times a day at different periods. I tried reinstalling the Windows Components using the instillation cd but it would get about a quarter of the way and freeze up. The point where it begins to freeze is when it tries to configure Management and Monitoring Tools and Networking Services. It did however install some stuff before freezing. Since installing a quarter of the components back it doesn't freeze up anymore. The only time it will freeze up is if i try and open a program i have installed called Microsoft fix it, when i try to open up that program it is a sure fire freeze up. I have tried to uninstall Microsoft fix it and it will not let me uninstall it. It says that it is on a network resource that is unavailable.
I am using Windows XP 32 bit with a Dell Dimension 2400.
Can anybody help with this?
