Specs: Windows XP
my computer is hanging when i turn it on, and i can't use the keyboard either to control the pc, now, what i am doing is turning it off without shuttting it down because i cant shut it down because it was hanging. Now, when i turn it on again its already functioning normally, but its always happening again and again. What should I do?

yhunalicious, pure SWAG. Emptied 'index.dat' lately? A common ailment is a file called 'index.dat'. It gets read every time and can take quite a while if it’s too bloated. It's like a log file and keeps a record of every site you visit on the web. Empty, it's 32K, but it can grow HUGE. It's a protected file and can't be deleted by normal methods. CCleaner (free @: http://www.ccleaner.com/) can get rid of it (not to worry, it gets rebuilt EMPTY on the next boot.).
