While playing games with a joystick everythings works for about 20 minutes then the game freezes, I then press CTRL,ALT & DELETE and the task box comes up and in the box there is a program called Msgsrv32 and it is not responding. I then close this program down and the game returns and works but the Joystick does not work and this problem has occurred with two different joysticks. I have tried the microsoft site and the solutions do not work.
I would appreciate a solution as I am new to computers and I am getting frustrated.
However, this article is commonly for Win95, it could be another application running in the background. If so, try repetitive Ctrl-Alt-Del, ending task on everything except EXPLORE & SYSTEM TRAY. If the problem goes away then you'll have to test each background program one at a time (trial & error) style until you find the problem child.
