Good morning all, I kind of added the beginning of this on the Internet Explorer refresh thread, This is what happens: Start>settings>cp>add/remove programs, page loads and freezes, need to reboot. Intermittent but more often than not. Do you think I should try getting into it in Safe Mode or maybe do a repair with the W2k pro discs? Doesn't matter how I get into Contro Panel, the same thing usually happens. If you need more specs from me, I'll find them, desk is a mess, sorry. As usual thanks in advance.
