Hi all, from "Down-under" here in Australia.
I have a AMD 2600Mhz. machine running XP Pro and for the last 5-6 months it has decided to stop processing frequently although the mouse continues to operate but no navigation can be accomplished until you press Ctl+Alt+Del and bring up the Task Manager window. All that has to be done then to get the machine operating again is to click on the "X" and close the Task Manager window.
I am not sure if it has any thing to do with the problem or not but around the time that the problem started was when I loaded Server 2003 Std. on a networked machine (not the machine in question) and I wonder if the type of protocol may have been changed by that installation. I would have sellected a Domain type of install when I installed it on that machine.
The machine runs absolutely fine apart from this hic cup. I Run Vet anti-virus, Spy-Bot S&D on the machine also. Helpfull suggestions would be great.
