Yesterday I dumped my Norton System Works 2003 and bought and installed System Mechanic 5 Profesional and ever since I did my computer has been locking up at random. Here are some examples of when the lock ups happened.


  • When the screensaver came on the screen went to black like the screensaver was going to come on but the screensaver never came on.
  • I went to save something from the net, I clicked on "save" and it froze up
  • Opening up notepad to read a txt file.
  • Clicked on one of my songs and the computer froze.

Does anyone know what is going on??

I'd get rid of the program you installed and see if it still happens. If the problem stops just don't install that program again. I'll send you a McAfee program for virus scanning that requires very little maintenence if you wish. With service pack 2, freeware Microsoft Antispyware Beta, and Mcafee, my computer has had absolutely no problems for quite a few months.


Sometimes I go about in pity for myself and all the while a great wind carries me across the sky.

Thanks for the offer. I will get back to you after I see if the freeze ups continue.

I only had 3 freeze ups today and none since I changed my monitor refresh rate to 60htz.

Uninstall the programme.
I use AVG Antivirus
Spybot for Spyware
Ad-Aware for Adware.
All Three are freeware.
Computer works great.
