My OS Hangs!!!

Hi All,

Nice to meet you. I'm from India. I've a PC at home, which is being a nightmare for me, for the past few months. The system hangs whenever I minimize the explorer or some other running application. I tried to change the graphical settings also (256 colors to 16 colors). This time it took little more time to hang (finally this one also hangs, but after some time).

This one happened in Win 98. Now I've installed win 2000 in my machine. But still facing the same problem.

What could be the reason? Any problem with my Display card? or Mother Board? or Drivers? I tried my level best to fix it but in vain.

Any help on this will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Regards
Elavarasan

This happens when you have installed a program not ment for your operating system. The program may had overwritten some of the dll files. Try uninstalling the software from control pannel>aad remove programs or there could a virus in your computer.
