Specs: Windows XP, Intel Pentium 4 Prossesor 2.60 Ghz
My computer all of a suddenly started freezing at random times. However, its not freezing like most people's computer. When my computer freezes, you can type ctr+alt+dlt and task manager WILL show.. however it only shows it, you cant click on it or anything. When my computer freezes i can also press the Task Bar button (next to Alt) and the start up thingy WILL go up, i just cant click on anything.

I did a virus scan and deleted all the viruses/trojans and also did a regestry cleaner and fixed all my regestry problems, defraged, disk cleaned, etc etc.. however this problem is still happening..

It happens at random times too... sometimes it wont happen for a whole day and sometimes it will happen every 10 mins.

PLEASE help me.. this problem is getting annoying.

(if you can't help me please give me a website or forum where i can get better help)

Have you recently installed new memory?

When you bring up the task bar can you navigate it with the tab key and select items with the Enter key as it sounds as if just the mouse is unresponsive and the keyboard is still working.

Although a mouse is useful it is not essential and everything you can do with a mouse can be done via the keyboard.

If this is the case then I would try another mouse as that might just be the problem.

I hope you are not suggesting that the members of this forum are not up to the task. No you wouldn't do that, no one would be so impolite as to do that would they.

I agree with Stuart. It sure appears to be a mouse or mouse controller problem. Try reseating the mouse connector cable (with power off).

If it's a wireless mouse, try new batteries.

For what it's worth to XP users: When you click on the 'Command Prompt' you are just causing the 'Command prompt' to be displayed. This prompt gives you access to the 'NT Virtual DOS Manager'.
