System locks-up

  1. About twice a day everyday my computer completely locks-up. The screen becomes frozen and the only way to recover is to physically turn off the power button and reboot. Ctrl-alt-del doesn't even work when i get the lock-up. It seems to happen randomly, while on the internet, while using programs, while doing nothing, and even sometimes during system scans.

    I followed most of the instructions on the "Follow these instructions BEFORE posting your HJT log." and i managed to "fix" a few of the problems in my HJT scan but would like to know if i need further fixing.

    I have windows millenium so was unable to get an Ewido scan but i was able to get a scan from TrojanHunter and most of the other programs that you listed.

    Your HJT log looks clean.

    I suggest you open a new thread in our Windows OS forum for your problem.

    Regards Howard :)

    I haven't had a lock-up all day (knock on wood) since following the "Follow these instructions BEFORE posting your HJT log" thread, but if i do i'll hit the windows os forum.
