    i get those stupid XP errors when i open stuff and evenutallky it stops responding and i have to close it. i don't know how else to describe but all i can say is right after i open it an error comes.

    the programs that i've noticed that do that are norton, steam, emule, and outlook express.

    Have you installed anything lately? Try system restore. Run a full virus scan if you can (this is why you create rescue disks). I myself would format, perform a clean Windows installation, and install only what I absolutely need. Remember, every program you install is another potential problem, not to mention resource consumer.
