Win XP has me in fits! * Threads merged by mod I am running Win XP Pro as my O/S on my home computer. I have a Celeron 466MHZ with 192 MB SDRAM. I have to restart 2-3 times on average every time I start-up in the morning. The thing just freezes. It will then do the same several times during the, and sometimes during very untimely occasions. Is it because my system can't handle it? I know of people running PC's a lot less powerful than mine with no trouble. Also, the Windows auto -update is always asking my firewall (Zone Alarm) for permission to access the Internet. I have folowed directions at Tweak XP to disable this service, only to find that I lose my network connection (online via/cable ISP). I hate it knowing that an app on my PC can talk to Microsoft at will, without me having any control. Please, somebody help me!!
