Downloaded Avast antivirus onto my old XP computer,at the end of the download was asked did I want to scan the HD now. answered yes. but decided part way through the stop the proccess aas itwas taking a long time, pressed esc to cancel proccess,at this point the computer froze. can anyone help with this prob.
Thank you Stuartli for your response. 1.tried Ctrl+Alt+Del Did not bring up task manager. 2.Held down the off button and shut down the unit. Rebooted logged on and the desktop still frozen. I rebooted seconds after shutting down maybe should have left it off longer ?? Any further advise would be welcomed.
