Vostro 220 windows xp freezes randomly

Running Windows XP on a one year old Vostro 220. Problem seems to have started after I replaced McAffee with Norton 360 per Comcast's changeover. I have since uninstalled Norton but the problem persists. Ran PSA which showed no hardware or memory problems. I believe Norton must have changed some of the registry values. I am running Norton on my laptop with Windows 7 but that is not a problem. No freezes. Help.

  1. First use revo uninstaller to make sure you got rid of all the Norton software.

    Then use ccleaner to scan the registry for errors.

    Use memtest to test your RAM. It's really the best software to do so.
