I often experience difficulty when closing the dialup connection or shutting down XP on my laptop. The fan starts and continues without ceasing and the machine freezes. Any ideas?

The fact that the fan starts spinning would indicate to me that the CPU's utilisation is high. This could be caused by things trying to access the Internet, that probably shouldn't be.
