Constant freezing

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.general (More info?)

My computer is constantly freezing, especially when playing games. It also
freezes when trying to run a full anti virus scan and also when running
diskcleanup. Cannot find the source of the problem and would be grateful for
any info that might help resolve this problem. I have all current updates
for the products installed.

    What do you mean by freezing? Does the computer lockup so you have to
    turn it off with the power button, or does the program lock up but you
    can end the program with task manager? Have you done a thorough scan
    for malware using a variety of programs and run those scans in safe
    mode? When did this problem start? Was it always like this? If not
    what changed?

    Please provide a good description of the issue to help others help you.

    You need more RAM. Take it up to 512MB or 1024MB.

    Thanks. How do I do that. Couple of questions though. Would lack of RAM
    cause Norton to be unable to complete a scan (this only happens under my user
    name and not on my daughters settings)? Would clearing some things of the
    computer help?

    Sorry fro delay in responding. Have updated all drivers. Increased RAM to
    736MB.
    Current details 40.02 usable hard drive capacity - 20.56 free space.
    Computer still freezing although not as frequently. Freezes when not
    actually being used as well.
