my laptop appears to stop for some reason at random times. then when i pres ctl + alt + del it works again. i can move the mouse but thats it. the laptop works fine on my linux partion so its probly not hardware.

i have a dell latitude c600 running win xp pro. ive done a virus check and an ad-ware search. a problem with windows its self?

The standard C600 came with 128mb RAM. If you have not upgraded to at least 512mb then you are probably just running out of memory. Even 256mb is not really viable with XP Pro as there is not much left over to run applications.
