My operating sytem is XP Home edition version 2002 servicepack 2, 3.00 GHz 3.25 GB RAM and have automatic updates turned off and have done so since I have had my computer about 18 months ago.. Up untill a couple of months ago I used to be able to open up my documents and open up a file. Since then when I go to my documents and double click or right click on a file I just get the hour glass and it's not responding. I then have to open up my task manager and have to end my the file. Then when I go straight back and to the same tasks it opens up the file. As long as I keep my computer on I can go to as many files as I want in my documents and opens them everytime untill I shut down my computer. I am a bit baffled ...hope someone can help.
