I dunno what the problem is but my computer likes to freeze while running programs like computer games. I also have issues on the side with freezing when trying to run programs that use memory for long ammounts of time like adaware and when compressing for over 20 mins in winrar. I have no idea what the problem is but it was still there when I reformatted. It isn't my video card is it? I looked in event viewer and one program does come up alot consistantly. Under system its described that IPSEC services had a problem because the authentication services where unknown. If anything that would be the problem with the computer freezing if it had to do with errors since its the only thing that comes up ALOT. The problem isn't isolated to only CD games though it also occurs in games like doom. I have an AMD athlon processor with 901 mhz 128 mb ram Nvidia Vanta LT card.
