I have already had to restart 6/7 times today it has been getting progressively worse over the last few days with on occasion freezing almost immedietly after logging on I am running xp pro sp3 with upto date Macfee firewall/antivirus ....... I have defragged everything, run cc reg cleaner, uninstalled latest updates all to no avail
