Restarting computer on Windows XP

  goll_y 15:45 22 Apr 2004

I've just invested in Windows XP Professional and have been using it for about a week now. However, niggly problems have crept it that I'm not sure how to solve.

Being the idiot I am I didn't manage to set a system restore before the problems started so can't revert back to previous settings (I will learn from this!).

The computer seems to keep crashing after a period of time (30 mins ish) when using IE and I'm not sure why. It's becoming quite annoying and something I want to get fixed. Have run AVG, Windows Washer and Adaware but can't seem to find a problem there.

Any suggestions?

Now what be useful here is some details about the machine too. We know its xp pro but what about the machine? Ram for instance? How old is the machine? ETC

I have just realised that the headline says "restarting computer on windows xp" does that imply that the computer keeps restarting or is it "crashing"? If its the former then there is a way round it, if the latter could you post any error details here

sorry, its the latter - it keeps crashing. I've deleted AVG as I thought that might be the problem but I'll see.

Had it quite a few years but only just got someone to wipe the hard drive and put on Windows XP Professional but when he started it there were no problems. That means it's probably something I added - might have to keep on tracing what I've dowloaded and delete that.

Where do I find how much RAM I've got?
