Crashing On The Hour

  Master Kaii 12:21 22 Oct 2007

Ive had this problem for about a month now...
Everytime my clock on my taskbar changes hour [eg 11:59-12:00] My full screen ap will slow down fps to about 3-5, before crashing.
Im running on windows xp proffesional if that helps... i have no idea what to do and im not exactly an expert at computers.
Any suggestions or sullutions please let me know.

Nah i dont have anything else running.
Nothing in the bottom right corner next to the clock, it doesnt make a difference what else is open it still ends up crashing exactly on a new hour.

I don't have any security really, i just have virus removal programs. But i never really need it because i dont go on anything remotely dodgy

You don't need to go anywhere remotely dodgy to be at risk of picking up Malware of one kind or another.

Get an AV Loaded, Updated and Run. I run AVG which is free, Spybot S&D which is free, and SuperAntiSpyware which is also free. They protect me so long as I update and run them regularly.

Zone Alarm, also free.

Many will argue which of the Freeware is the best, I suppose that it goes in phases, but there is no need to spend a penny.

Your problem does sound like Malware is causing it.
