Hi all ,
My freinds pc picture locks up when using the internet , the screen flickers and then goes black and when the screen reappears then its back on the desktop screen. You have to reboot the internet to get back on. I have done a virus check and they had 11 , cleaned them up but the screen still does it.
Any ideas . (windows xp)

Repair XP by replacing corrupt files

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.
