    first of all you need to go here http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com/ and get all the patches and stuff that it tells you that you need. that will take a while.

    Now it may happen that you religiously download all of the patches (like I did) and you still have the same problem. I start playing a video or open several IE windows with different pages and all of the sudden everything freezes or suddenly all of the IE windows crash. I have SP1 installed and everything....

    but maybe you get lucky.....let us all know!
