you don't have enough ram or memory If you take off your start-up programs, it may help. On windows XP go to the start button, run and type in msconfig. At the top of the window there are tabs choose the tab that says start-up. Uncheck everything it will not harm your computer. Click apply then ok. It will tell you to reboot your computer when it reboots a window will appear that states "You are using selective start-up" there is a box in the middle of the window that says "Do not show this messge again" click that. Open up internet explorer at the top go to tools then go down to windows updates, follow the on-screen instructions. When complete reboot your computer and do the windows updates again. Do this a few times to make sure nothing is missing. Right click on the internet explorer icon on your desktop and go to properties, click delete cookies, click delete files, click clear history, change the history to 2 days. Doing any of these steps may make your computer freeze if you have never done it before. Next to the delete files button says "settings" click it move the slider bar to the highest it will go, click apply. Also go to and download the latest updates
