Ok, I'll try to give you as much info as possible.

We had a standalone Dell machine, which wasn't on the company network. Last week we needed a spare machine on the network so we hooked it up. Everything is kosher, the IP address, workgroup, network ID...everything.

Now, when it was a standalone machine it operated without any problems but now its on the network it freezes randomly necessitating a reboot. Sometimes you can use it for a couple hours before it gives out, sometimes five minutes. The frezzes don't even show up as errors on event viewer.

Saying that, when I sometimes try and browse the network by clicking My Network PLaces, I get something odd. When I double click on My Network Places, the desktop icons go awol and then reappear after a couple seconds, the same as when you click refresh.

Can anyone help? I'm pretty stumped and have tried everything from defrag, disk cleanup, windows repair, scandisk etc.

Might it have picked up a virus now it is no longer standalone?
If that is a possibility then go here:
