  1. i know these symptoms are vague but my computer randomly freezes and will not perform a clean shutdown from a normal startup. i have run check disk. i have no viruses except for windows XP. is there any way for me to easily figure this out without paying someone to look at it? i have done a shutdown but from safe mode. thank you for your time

    try running system files checker. put your XP disk in the optical drive, open a command prompt and type sfc /scannow this will check your system for missing or damaged files.
