Sounds like a software related issue to me, run windows update and update all your drivers as well. I also will not hurt to test your hard drive(s) for errors.

I agree; computing.net does need an edit button.

i´m on desktop, xpuser.

and sabertooth, that´s the third time i do a clean install. i´m trying to avoid windows updates (probably silly of me), but the last time i updated i had this explorer error bout every 30 min and my Ctrl+Alt+Del didn´t respond any more...
how could i test my hard drives?

i´m on desktop

It's a common knowledge among PC manufacturers and technicians that standby and hibernation:

1) wasn't meant for desktops other than laptops.

2) are problem-prone especially with desktops

The only advantage of using standby/hibernation is to conserve laptop battery consumption. Desktops doesn't use battery (I don't mean CMOS), do they?

M$ should have segregated Xp in two different OS - one for desktop without the power options and the other laptops with it.

I guess this is my rant for today :-)

Well they kinda did, since it is an optional feature........;-)


@ krypnik.

If you need to test your hard drive for errors go to the manufacturers website and download the test tool(s).
