    How soon after starting does it freeze? What are you doing at the time? Is it the typing cursor or the mouse pointer?

    Can you post a list of applications running in task manager?

    What are the results of a current virus scan?

Dell Vostro with XP - cursor is running rogue and endlessly going backward.


This "can" be malware, but is most likely your pointer device going wonky. First unplug the mouse, trackball, or whatever it is you are using for a mouse. If you are still using an old PS2 connection (round plug), consider getting a USB mouse to replace it.

Plug your mouse back in and see if it solves the problem.

Try a new mouse.

If it's not the mouse (you just said the cursor is moving) it could be that the left arrow on your keyboard is stuck. In that case, rake your keyboard, tap ******* the arrow keys, turn over the keyboard and shake out any large Cheeto crumbs, use compressed air (if possible) to blow the dust out.

Unplug your keyboard from the computer and plug it back in. If you are still using the old PS2 keyboard (round plug), consider getting a USB keyboard to replace it. *** warning

*** warning, do NOT throw out the old PS2 plug keyboard if you replace it. You may need it to get into the BIOS some time in the future if the electronics don't recognize a USB keyboard on boot.
