PC freezes

  JLPCORR2 22:10 09 Nov 2006

Every so often, well quite regularly my PC freezes. I can still move the mouse but am unable to click on any icon or the start button. When the mouse hovers over the start button the egg timer is present. It sticks at this point and may only be overcome by restarting.
I am running Windows XP service pack 2. I recently installed a Nvidia graphics card but was having similar problems before the old card gave up, only then the whole screen froze & was unable to move the mouse. I have also recently installed IE7.
Any ideas?

sfc /scannow

in the run box, press enter and let system file checker find and replace missing / corrupt file in windows and explorer.This will take awhile to complete and you may be asked for the CD to be in the drive if windows is not preinstalled on the hard drive.
