    I will have to agree with you guys, Xp has been nothing short of great to work with.

    Sounds bad. Maybe a reinstall is in order? Maybe the hdd has seen better days?

    Something seems to be making it unhappy, and it's not the fault of the OS.

    1) Update your antivirus and do a full system scan.
    2) Format the drive, reinstall XP, and don't touch stuff that you're not sure about after that. I've had XP running on my desktop, nice and stable since November 2001. Never had to do a format since then. :)

    I had a problem once, it was NAV2002 conflicting with Zonealarm - or visa versa - got rid of Zonealarm - now no prob.

    Linux is hardly a replacement for XP ....XP with all its faults is still the best OS i have ever used.

    as a free download it just doesnt get any better :)

    Well I have say XP is the most stable OS I have ever used other than 2000. But I also have had a few gliches lately and I think it is MS's fault with the damn updates. I think there was a problem with one of the updates because right after it installed a device driver of mine (have no idea which one, it doesn't tell me) kept crashing my system. Then another update came out and it hasn't happen in a few days, so I don't know. But I know that Win 98SE was the 3rd sign of the appocolpse ^sp. That OS crashed all the time!

    98 SE was absolute crap!
    I went back to it just to see how bad it was, nothing worked ever, it hung left right and centre!!

    Dog Shi*e!!

    XP is good, but room for improvement...?
