    i recently installed all the software which i used e.g.
    office, winamp, winrar etc. and everything was working
    fine untill i installed the criticals updates from
    microsoft!! it would freez on a regular basis after that!
    there was no one triger, it was just do it when ever it
    felt like it...
    i think did a system restore to before the updates were
    installed, and everything is fine.... i just installed
    the windows updates (not the critical ones) and it's
    fine, haven't had a freez since!

    is there one critical update that stands out for makin xp
    freez? or should a do it one by one still one stands out?

    thanks for your help :eek:)

  2. It is usually best to install updates no more than 3 at a time for
    just this reason.
    Try that until you find the particular update.

    Be sure to disable all unnecessary applications including anti virus
    before updating.
