This is more than likely a problem with the RAM. The concept is: each program uses a certain amount. When you reach the limit of what your computer has installed, the computer freezes and refuses to start programs. The way you can fix this is to install more RAM.

I would suggest buying some on
You can either install it yourself, or you can take it to a computer repair shop and have them do it for you.

Also, you can comment on my page and i will provide step-by-step instructions.

Hope this helps!

Be Careful of this dern WinXPAntivirus and Antivirus 2008 claiming you have "stuff" that needs removing NOW for $XX.XX
There is always a FREE one that does the job correctly.

Download Spybot Search and Destroy.

Install and UPDATE SpyBot. Custom install it and do no put in "TeaTimer" unless you want to watch your registry like a hawk. Boot into safe mode by clicking <Start> <Run>, Type "msconfig" and hit enter.

Go to the Boot tab and check Boot in Safe Mode. When you click OK it will as to restart. (You have to turn it off the same way or it will keep rebooting into safe mode)

Restart and when in safe mode Start SpyBot and immunize your system. Then run a complete scan removing everything it finds.
This is only 1 of 5 possible steps to clean your system out.

Other programs to consider
AdAware - Free Version for adware, grayware, malware, spyware
Clean up! - Says what it does
Avast! - Free Antivirus
I also recommend Googling "housecall" as Trend Micro is very up to date but hard to get a java shell or browser scanner to work correctly with system failure eminent.

Most times I can remotely fix it for a nominal charge.

Msn e-mail

Either you're clicking on the wrong spot, or your computer is freezing up. Does the link change color or light up right when you click on it? If so, it's not the link. Does your computer freeze up or does it just act like the links are useless?
