Taw®, I don't know whether this will cure your problem but I have a piece of s/w called Fresh UI.

It's a tweaking tool for windows. One of the options that can be set is "Fix the problem with Athlon hanging APG programs".

You can download it from click here , and it's only a 800KB download(don't know whether your on dial-up).

You have to provide them with an email address to register the product, but in saying that I've never received any spam from them, just the occasional newsletter to say a newer version of Fresh UI is available.

Hope this helps with your problem. Even if it doesn't, it's useful for easily changing some of XP's settings, dagwoood.
