Default Freezing with XP Home Edition

Nope. I've done everything I can think of. I haven't
downloaded the update that everyone is saying is bad. I
have run three different antivirus programs with nothing
found. It is getting very frustrating.

I'm having the same exact problem...have you been able to
figure anything out???

Just recently my computer started to freeze up when

online
which is most of the time since I have wireless. I can
still do things on the pages I'm on if I have them up.

But
my taskbar doesn't let me click anything. It freezes. It
doesn't matter if I"m working in a "normal" program or
searching the web. I've done all the troubleshooting I

can
think of. I even ran spybot and anti virus and they

found
nothing. Could it be an XP compatibility issue? I

haven't
downloaded anything new on my computer so am actually
stuck. Any help would be appreciated!! Thanks, .

Did you try with all virus programs shut down? Check the cooling fans?

If the Internet pages you are looking at has a lot of animation, video etc
this can happen. I have had several web cam open at the same time and this
will happen. Also if someone sends me several Animated GIFs it will lock up

Xref: kermit microsoft.public.windowsxp.perform_maintain:77328

Should not happen with a good video card and the proper driver.
