I had to reformat my entire driver(long story). When I go to the windows
update page, it's asking me to install Sp2, not SP3. About the "frozen"
issue. It happened after installing SP2. Every folder would freeze or take a
while to open .The KB suggester I should update my BIOS.
Some of my specs:
Operating System: Windows XP Home Edition (5.1, Build 2600) Service Pack 1
System Manufacturer: GATEWA
System Model: SR84510A
BIOS: BIOS Date: 08/18/04 20:53:52 Ver: 08.00.10
Processor: Intel(R) Celeron(R) CPU 2.66GHz
Memory: 1014MB RAM
Hard disk drives: (c)-160GB
-Haven't update all my drivers yet, i'll do that.
-No antivirus software yet, im waiting till after i install the service pack.
-Im using a very slow dial up connection on this computer.
