Ever since I installed Panda Titanium 2006 on my computer, I get a lot of freeze-ups. These usually happen when I am using IE. I also get a freeze-up when I am shutting off my computer. It occurs at the Windows 98 screen right before the computer shuts down. When these happen, I have to turn off the computer and restart it from the power. Any ideas on what could be causing this and maybe a fix? Thanks so much.

Hey,

It's probably because you have too much things installed on your computer. Right click your C: in My Computer and click on Properties. You should have at least 30% memory left, just to be on the safe side. If your memory is pretty full go to..

Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs > Remove everything you don't use anymore.

Try that and it should work. I thought that this would be the problem because it happened right after you installed something meaning it probably clogged up your remaining memory.

Thanks, but I've gone that route. I've deleted everything that's not important.
