Freezing caused by power cut.

Since a power cut (PC was turned on at the time) two days ago,My PC freezes regularly, sometimes after a few seconds, 10 mins, half hour, you name it. I have done a couple of restores, but no difference, what should I try next?

I should have added that I have to use the XP cd to start the PC as well at times.

run sfc /scannow and have disk ready if asked for.

Could you be a bit more specific please. Praps I should have put this query in the absolute beginners forum !

I have just noticed in "manage add-ons", all of the add-ons that I had disabled, have enabled themselves.

What Johnnyrocker means is go to start and click there when your computer is running

Click on run type in run sfc /scannow

note the spacings and have your XP cd to hand as it might be asked for by the computer in order to repair your problem

I hope that helps -- -- we all started once
