Not knowing the "a totall different approach to how to remove spyware quaked 2.0" at an un-named other forum, I do wonder what Operating System changes may have occurred. Using the tools available here and at other anti-malware sites like PCPitstop and Spywareinfo, I am aware that the tools actually "remove" the protection of SpywareBlaster and IE-Spyads, but these are easily re-installed. I wonder if the method you used did change your OS. You could run your System File Checker to identify and replace any missing or corrupt operating system files. Start - Run - (type) sfc /scannow This is a totally non-destructive process provided in the XP system that will call for the original files to be replaced if missing or corrupt. Best Regards

i would think a overheating mobo would give you random errors, rather than the same one all the time
you can get temps from some mobo BIOS, also software to read temps in windows, if its supported by the mobo. if you reformatted/reinstall windows, then you can rule out malware. i would start looking at drivers,hardware, RAM or like you said overheating. all that is beyond the scope of this forum.

When you reformated and reinstalled your operating system, did you remember to install your Chipset Drivers immediately after installing the operating system? If not do so now.

Don't know what ChipSet your MotherBoard uses?
Download Everest 2.20 (free) from MajorGeeks.
Install and Run Everest
Click on MotherBoard - ChipSet (Everest will even show you a download link)

Everest can also display Temperatures and voltages that your motherboard and peripherals are capable of reading.

For a more detailed display of Temperatures consider SpeedFan or MotherBoardMonitor.

To test for faulty RAM consider MemTest86

To investigate Driver problems, go to Device Manager and look for any yellow or red warnings.
If present, double-click on the item and select Remove, and then ReBoot, to allow Windows to "Find New Hardware" and "Install drivers for new hardware."

To get a good overview of all systems and software running on your machine go over to:
http://www.pcpitstop.com
Click on Full Tests
Register
Run the test (requires that you accept an ActiveX) (it's OK)
After you get your Test Results click on TechExpress (yellowish-brown in the upper right area)
Copy and past the complete TechExpress URL link, Paste it here into this thread so we can take a look.

dough, i think i DID install the chipset driver, since its together WITH my mobo cd... but how can i be sure if its downloaded? its Intel Lakeport i945P... is EVEREST home edition you are talking about? i already have that or is there a better version of it? shelf life, i have done all that u said, the hangs are even AFTER the reformat was done... so i got a little irritated and asked you guys for help... yes overheating would be a problem that here cant solve... but if there is other ways to prevent it would be glad to know... i already removed my cover and my mobo is exposed... get more air ventilated... i was just wondering, my fan on the processor.. should i use a cotton bud and clean of the dust? would it be recommended?

Don't go stiking things (even cotton buds) into anything in your computer. (note: while most of your machine releases its electrical charge when you turn it off, the Power Supply holds dangerous levels of electric charge for a very long time, even when the power cord is unplugged.) Use a Can of Compressed Air to clean fans, heatsinks and other areas inside your case. "Very Lightly" hold the Fan Blade from spinning with the eraser end of a wooden pencil when you direct compressed air onto the fan for cleaning. Try to do an especially good job of blowing that compressed air into and around the HeatSink Fins that are on top of your processor. Opening the side of your case Does Not necessarily increase air circulation over the important parts of your machine. In fact, having the case open, can Defeat air circulation. Your case and case fans are designed to draw air from the front panel intakes, over and across the components that heat up the most and then exhaust that heated air out the back. With the side of the case open, the fans may just be blowing into your room, and not following the designed pathways to cool the machine. If you leave your case open for any period of time beyond just a very few minutes, use a Table Top or window fan to continuously blow large quantities of air directly into the case. Everest Home edition, either 1.51 or 2.20 is just fine. Excellent programs. Regarding ChipSet. Go to the MotherBoard website or the computer manufacturer's website. Download and install the recommended ChipSet Drivers from the site. Let us know how you are progressing. Best Regards

Hmm maybe some video codecs are missing so you cant watch jap anime.
And you know that WindowMediaPlayer is not good in watching videos and movies.

So if you want to enjoy watching a jap anime like me, I suggest you follow my own strategy :

My Strategy :

1.)You must install a winamp 5.21
Visit : http://www.winamp.com/

1.)After installing it, you cannot watch a videos yet until you install a video codecs for winamp
Visit: http://www.free-code...mp_download.htm

3.)Then run winamp and start watching your favorite jap anime


Enjoy
I hope I could help :D

This will probably clear up the "mess" for you.

Intel has a "chipset identifier utility" at this site.
Download and run it on the machine you want to update to identify the specific set of drivers you need.
