Yesterday I turned on my computer (AMD 1800 xp pro sp2) and I clicked on one of my folders on the desktop and the computer locked up for a minute and came up with a dr. watson error. I tried to open any other program or file and it is the same thing. The only thing I can open is Outlook. I can send and recieve emails fine, but if I try to type a web page in outlook to visit a site (because I can not open IE) it locks up and shuts down outlook. The only way I can get online is by cutting and pasting a link in outlook (but I only have a few seconds if i am longer than that it locks up) The only way I can open up files is by attaching them first into an email and then opening it from there. I can not open or run any programs.
I was able to cut and paste a link to trend Micro and did a spyware and Virus scan, but came up clean on the virus and a few spy ware that I removed, but all looks fine. I also ran a ram/ memory test off a floppy and all tested out fine. I cleaned the mobo and ram slots incase there was dust...everything looks fine.
