:eek: Of late, programs seem to freeze for no reason. In order to close them and reopen them, I have to "ctrl alt del". When I do that, I see in the list "Windows Not Responding" and have to select that to 'end task' to get things running again (as well as close the 'frozen' program). Recently I have reformatted my pc due to conflicts w/my digi cam software (all resolved, was missing codecs). These probs started before the new software was installed, and still occur now though pc has been reformatted and everything installed new from scratch (no backups were used). Sometimes, I'm so frozen, that I have to reboot completely.
Could this be due to a 'leak' in RAm? My pc is 3.5yrs old. Could it be that I need a new RAM? or a bigger one? Please note, I don't even use half of my 14GIGs since I don't save files on the pc, but burn them to CD instead.
Please help :o (As per my profile: pc is a PIII, 14gig, 1000mhz, 128RAM, Custom Built. Running Win98se & Office Pro 2000 - all updated on the MS site as recent as this week)
