I'm runnign a new Dell 3.2GHz box, with XP home, spybot and adaware, alogn with updated norton run biweekly, defragged and disk clean'd almost that often.
It freezes randomly. One program will freeze, and if I try to load up Windows task manager, that INVARIABLY freezes too. I've gotten AIM, IE and winamp freezes, but also ha ve had it freeze randomly when I opened the start menu.
My cooling seems to be ok.
Oftentimes it freezes very quickly after I boot, and then when I do a hard restart (kills me on the inside to hit the power button, but necessary) it will come back fine.
My HD is 80% free. The problem started after about a month of use, I turn of the comp every night and have it set to hibernate after 4 hours of inactivity.
