Just recently my computer constanly locks up, I have run Virus scan and spyware scan, both clean I am running XP.
Has anyone any ideas to what could be causing this?
Many Thanks

If using I/E try Firefox temporary.If with Virgin contact them.

I have tried Firefox for a couple of days but still no improvement, I`m not using Virgin, I`m using Orange, any other ideas?
Many Thanks

If an oldish computer check that the air vents are clear of dust and fluff if so inside might need cleaning out as well.Overheating,make sure all of your fans are working Ok.Maybe PSU on the way out.Maybe try running Winaso.Free version.click here it will only repair 10 items at a time but you can run it as often as you like.Defrag and Check Disk might help.
