this is all the info i think if you need anything else just ask

i also have adaware and micro soft anti spy installed

sorry xp home edition service pack 2 :o

How recently did you "just" reformat it? If it was just a few days ago, this is probably a hardware issue. Otherwise, it could be a virus or spyware, but this is not likely because of the software you're running.
Try running memtest86 to see if you memory's bad. These kind of problems are usually related to memory because it goes bad often, and when it does, it still works but only some of the time.

it was done on friday i also cannot open any links from outlook express or download bt help files could this be realated

Then this is either a hardware issue or a driver issue. Try downloading all the new drivers for your system from the manufacturer website. If the problem persists, you're going to have to go through the painful process of finding out which piece of hardware is causing the problem. I had a problem on my pc where the network card was causing my computer to hang. I found this out after switching out my cpu, ram, and video card with a friend's. After all that I realized that when I was not online, my computer didn't hang. Good luck!

Oh and I saw your Outlook problem on the other thread, it's definitely related.

how do i download memtest i just tried and i confused the heck out of me

it's easy, just download the zip file and extract it (all in the same directory). Run Rawrite.exe and it will ask you for the image name, type memtest.bin and push enter. Then it'll ask you for a drive letter; type "A" push enter
put a blank floppy in your drive and push enter
After it's done writing, reboot and keep the floppy in the drive
Let it run for a few hours/overnight, it'll try writing all kinds of data to your ram and check it for errors. I haven't done it for a while, but it gives you a whole lot of data, but I think one of the things it says is "number of errors" or something equally as simple. If not, the website should give you some help deciphering what memtest is trying to tell you.

Ive Updated The Moterboard Drivers And Its Still The Same My Floppy Wont Acept The Disk Is There Anyother Way Of Try Memtest

Won't accept the disk? Do you mean that it won't create the disk, or that you can't boot off of it?

Another way out of memtest would be to do what I did: Find a close friend and swap his parts into your case and see how they work. I was fortunate that my friend had the same exact motherboard as me, but it doesn't really matter.

Also, check ALL your drivers, not just your motherboard (your video card has more power over your system than you think!)

will try them now my floppy disk is broken so it wont take the disk

: ive done all you ask and there are no errors any more ideas please

its still maxing out and also has started to restart by it self
