Im running Vista on a Vostro 1510 laptop, 3gig RAM, 1.8GHz dual core processor, just a pastime computer. I've had the laptop for ~4 months now, and in the past month it has been locking up and acting strange. Anywhere from a few minutes to an hour after startup the bottom toolbar including the lower-left Vista icon will freeze. It can be fixed for a few minutes by doing CTRL-ALT-DELETE which will un-freeze the toolbar, but it often locks right back up in a few minutes. Also, when navigating through folders or webpages, pretty much anything with a forward/backward navigation, it will randomly flip back through previously visited pages to the front page. When this happens I can still navigate through webpages, but every new page must be opened in a new tab, which you can imagine is very annoying.
This happens ~half the time I use the laptop, and normal programs run perfectly fine. The only thing thats really affected is web-browsing and navigating through folders in My Computer, and the lower desktop toolbar freezing. If you need any more info just let me know.
Any help is appreciated,
