Just recently my computer began to freeze up randomly sometimes it won't do it for an hour or two, but it inevitible none the less and there is no response from my mouse or keyboard when it happens so my only option is to turn my pc off. When I first noticed this problem I came here thinking it was virus related but I read your helpful page and followed every step and got rid of some spyware in the process but the freezing continued. I then decided to just dump everything and start from new and reinstall XP and it seemed to work fine for several hours but then it happened again. The most annoying part is the fact that I can't even pin point a certain action or spot where my computer just freezes. I am at a loss. My comp is a:
Compaq Presario Special edition 7000
AMD athlon 1.2o GHz with 256 MB of ram but have upgraded another 256 card since
NVidia TNT pro model 64
I had this problem once before a little while ago and brought it to an electronics place and the guy there claimed it was virus related and he found some trojan virus on my comp and when I got it backed it worked for a while but started up again just a couple of days ago
My computer knowledge is limited so any help from anyone would be much appreciated.
