Hey all new here

Slowly working my way through learning the basics of javascript an it's good fun!

Anywho Iv'e been having this problem for a while now.

Every so often (quite often) the taskbar freezes. It's so freaking irritating. If I click on it lots the box comes up with do I want to wait for the program to respond or close the program. If I click close it closes it all an starts again and is fine, untill it freezes again. It is extremely annoying!

Just wondered if anyone had any ideas?

Windows vista home premium is what im running. I'd put xp on here if I could. Im on a laptop by the way.

Thanks heaps

Taskbars don't freeze.

What program is locking up, and what are you doing when it does?

I'd suggest paving it and installing Linux. No more Vista problems. By the way, Vista sucks colossal testes.

Just a suggestion.

I think it's the child porn doing this, or it's just Windows.

It could be both.

Child porn doesn't just occasionally freeze up your computer intermittently, it screws up the whole thing to a point where it would never be the same again... as if it was a 11yo boy.

Do a clean boot - msconfig - click on services tab and hide all microsoft services - disable everything else.

Click on startup tab and disable everything.

I would keep a note of what you had enabled to begin with so you can undo your changes when you're done if need be.

Reboot - your computer, it should run perfectly, if it doesn't you're having problems with a driver, your system is corrupt or you're having hardware issues.

If it is running well, then start re-enabling each service/startup item until you find the program/service which is conflicting with Vista.

Stop using it... ;)

It's time consuming - BUT WILL solve your problem.
