I hope someone can help me with a puzzle on my fathers computer, lately the following programs seem to hang and a regular basis. The programs are Explorer.exe, wmplayer.exe iexplorer.exe. Xp is all up to date with the updates and service packs. He Has run Adware6 ,Spybot aswell and defrag the hard drives and he also has no virus
The Spec: AMD Duron 800mhz, cd rom & Writer, 20 & 40GB HDD, Jetway V266b Motherboard, 768mb Sdram, 64MB Vid, Creative SoundCard.
After reinstalling XP has suggested by Pilch from exiled-gamers.co.uk thanks again, the problem seamed to be still there. But now when you log off the internet and return to the desktop a faint outline of possibly a program seam to still be running but there is no name on the toolbar, what ever program is running he get 100% cpu usage constantly. Another thing when you log on to the internet through his provider which is AOL, MSM Messenger starts receiving messages but it's options for that are untick and XP has been told not to load it, this was done using msconfig and the startup settings. Could this have some thing to do with the explorer.exe, wmplayer.exe and iexplorer or is just that there is not enough proccessing power for all this to run at once.
