Specs: Windows XP
Okay so i have this a HP Pavilion a6720y, Windows Vista computer and lately its has not been acting right. Like for example if i were to run any program after 2 mins or so it would freeze, and when i try to close it, it wont close at all, and no box pops up asking wat to do. I've tried scanning my computer, but it was pointless because the scan would freeze in the middle too. Oh and would system reformatting it remove the problem, if so, How do u system reformat a Hp Vista Computer?

Oh and i know this is Windows XP section, srry i forgot to change the OS before i post this, but if u guys can help me TYVM.

At boot up hit the F8 key and run it in Safe Mode. After safe mode started, try to run the virus scan. If the computer still freezes up then it may be a hardware issue (bad memory or bad hard drive). Running in Safe mode loads only the minimal drivers so if it runs normally in safe mode with no freeze ups then you have a software issue - likely a recently installed or updated driver.
