If you clean install, try updating things, rebooting and checking the state pf play in between, against downloading the lot and not having a clue what is responsible for any unwanted behaviour

You just need Feb 06 update from the same source as he got Dec

If you haven't got much data on the drive, and you can back it up then I would start over

No problem with trying autopatcher now

Just reboot in between installing anything, set system restore points then you can just retrace a step to undo anything which isn't working correctly

ok lets start this new...........

I reinstalled XP......everything went ok, normal bootup everything........

First thing I did was add a New dial-up acount........
then I conneceted to the internet.........42.5 kbps....not bad
I clicked IE.....it loaded the microsft welcome page thingy........
I typed in yahoo.com........it started to load.......got almost done....then the whole thing froze up.........I could not (control+Alt+Delete) or nothing..........had to hold the power button in until it shut off.......


I played with window at the start just to see if it was stable........it loaded and ran several apps that came with the computer........before I did the internet thingy..just to see if there was any bugs.......

What do I do Now?

ok while I waited for a responce I decided I would try one more time to load a web page, but before I started I changed the home page in tool/internet options.......to point to yahoo.com

so I connected......and clicked IE...........and this is what I got

I took a screen capture..of the monitor.........the pictures are.....at the below link

http://www.geocities...kshop/help.html


and then it still will not load anyweb pages and then frezes up.......Note I click the X in the top right of the boxes.

They were from messenger, which is supposed to be dealt with by SP2

As it is the recovery partition, it can stay as it is, hopefully you won't need it for a while

ok ran it..to take care of that problem.........but after like 5 minutes or so my connection times out and stop responding........and that frezes up the computer again......what do I do about.....the internet connection

(Note: all these programs you have told me to try I have all but the tune up one, I download this on this computer....which is my note book , I burnt to CD and installed on the problem computer, my sisters desktop.)

the strange thing is...when it stops responding......I can't kill the browser or the dial-up connection, I can still get to start/programs and the like......but if I choose to shut down......it does nothing.......in order to re-connect..or kill the browser, and dial-up......I have to hold the power button until it shuts down that way...then re-boot. Also....control+Alt+Delete dose not launch.....once the browser, or dial up stops responding.

Have you or anyone else dealt or heard of this type of problem before?........I have chatted with a few of my computer buddies.......and they have no clue, just like me. LOL
