Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional SP3 Full Version OEM for PC
I recently pulled down my main computer to clean it out and replace the thermal material on the processor (was running above 80 C). I had problems with programs becoming unresponsive and thought this would help.
It did help the system run better. I can 3D game again and get pre-problem Frame Rates. However, it still shows an issue with responding after being up for about an hour. In Google Chrome, it will let me open a new tab but won't let me navigate using it. I type in an address and it stays on the same page. I can still surf on any tabs that were already open. It sometimes opens and displays pages opened from within tabs that were already open. When I try to close Chrome, it hangs. Opening Task Manager to close Chrome causes Task Manager to stop responding also.
The problem is not limited to Chrome. I've gotten it in Hoyle Card games, MS Word, etc... The system then stops opening new programs and eventually locks up completely.
Anyone experienced this before, and better, know how to fix it?
Possible virus, corrupted files and registry. Try rebooting in safemode with network, if all works ok, then you have registry or virus problem; try scanning for virus and registry errors. If the problem insist in safemode, then you have corrupted system file and you will have to reinstall Windows.
