First problem started after opening OE, computer would freeze at Shut Down at the Saving Y Settings. Would have to manually shut down.
Updated XP SP2/ OE, everything worked for '1' day,
Presently, Shut Down continues to freeze, after getting online 'once' cannot reconnect, have to Shut Down manually and start over.
Another suggestion I tried that worked for 1 day, at the Properties for My Network Connection, unchecked the "Show Icon in Notification area..'
would appreciate any help,
