I wonder if anyone can help. Recently i'm finding that my system will stop responding for maybe 20-30 seconds. While the mouse pointer will move, i can't open the start menu or anything else. This problem ends when my task bar disappears, then reappears, as if windows is booting up again.
I'm on XP with all updates. I read somewhere that one of the recent patches caused systems to slowdown; forgotten where now though. Also, i recently used Tweak XP pro, which I found mostly to be a lot of crap, and subsequently uninstalled. Has this maybe 'tweaked' something, which has caused this problem?
I'm on a high-end machine; athlonxp 2400, 786mb ram, so it isn't the problem.
Thanks in advance.
