Hello,

Sorry you are having this problem This kind of thing from what you describe is one of the hardest things to find the cause for because it could be a number of things I must say you took all the steps to fixing the problem with making sure all your updates are installed and drivers.

That only leaves a few other things to think about that could be causing the problem

In my experience XP has been known to lock up applications For what reason it is beyond me computer Techs to this day say windows 2k is the stablest version of windows out there Another problem could be something you might have on your computer that is eating up memory Even tho i notice you have a Gig of memory which is more than enough Sometimes the processes you have runnin in the background and services cause your cpu to jump up and down So when you run an application and it requires cpu resources it crashes because of all the other processes running I would suggest checking your services ayou have running at startup and disabling some of them if you dont use them Then i would take a look at the processes that are using CPU resources that are not in use and maybe setting the priority lower Be careful not to tamper with things you might no know about because they may be of important.

Well i hope this has helped you.

Good luck
