  1. When I strart up my computer, windows xp freezes. Nothing happened no matter what I click. When I point the mouse to the ICON tray, I can see the busy time ICON. (not the arrow you see when you move your mouse).
    This happened first in March, then I reformatt and reinstall everything. Everything was ok for one month, and in APril this happened again.
    Then I reformatted again, everything again was ok for a month, and same thing happened, and I have to reinstall windows xp again in May.
    And now in June, same thing happened again. What can I do to solve this problem?
    Is this virus?
    I use CompaQ presario 2700 laptop
    Winxp
    512 ram
    pentium III 1.0 G

    Have you installed anti-spyware software like spybot and adaware? It's possible you're getting so loaded up with spyware that your system is slowing to a crawl.
