Hi...
I do appreciate any assistance you may be able to provide.

My computer will freeze when it has been left on for a day or so...
It will not allow access to any program and will not let you initiate any start button action. When you switch comp off at power point things go back to normal when re-started.
When comp freezes, the task bar will appear at the top of the screen and alot of other programs appear in strange areas of the screen. None of these can be accessed. Task manager no access too.
Any assistance will be greatly appreciated..
Thankyou.

it could be a problem with standby or hibernate...
How to troubleshoot hibernation and standby issues in Windows XP here..

best practice is to shut off computer when your done using it...
the rational behind this is that windows usually will start throwing error messages before crashing and they can give you a clue as to what the problem is...
I can't tell you many computers ( a herd ) I have had to work on that people have left on and they crash in the night and refuse to reboot and the people have no idea what happened...
