Freezing and Non-Responsive PC

  1. Hi,

    As in the heading of my thread...my PC keeps freezing and is Non-responsive. I have just formatted the HDD and reinstalled WinXP.

    It takes forever to open some pages and I have 1gb of ram. My HDD is 120gb and the motherboard is 3.0ghz.

    I have a LG DVD burner which is another problem.......and a Nvidia video card

    Major software installed is

    Win XP home edition with SP2
    Bullguard Anti virus
    Opera internet browser
    PC on point registery fixer
    Assorted Popcap games
    Microsoft Office for XP
    123 copy dvd

    I only know the basics about PC's but I thought that my PC should be a lot faster than it is. I have downloaded all updated drivers for everything.

    I am hoping that someone can point me in the right direction to fix whatever problem my PC has.

    When it becomes unresponsive and I manage to get the task manager oopen..my CPU usage is only about 5%

    It might be that registry fixer you got there. I remember at one point i had one and after i ran it, my computer would let me logon, but after a few mins it would restart, and i couldnt get it to stop, until i reformated. So you might try re-format again and dont install or run that registry fixer. If that don't fix it try hitting it with a hammer :knock: !!

    Best of Luck.
