Some programmes freeze and I alt/control to find the message "winserv not responding" so I "end task " and the programme unfreezes .
Also every time I shut down I get the messages programme not responding and options - Wait 20 seconds ,end task or cancel , so I "end task" and shut down proceeds !
I'm on Windows Me .
Can anyone help ?
Thanks
Les
