Do the usual scans for spyware and viruses...clean your cache. Also when downloading alot if your HD is badly fragged it can cause a freeze up. So defrag if you haven't in awhile.

Try these and let us know if it helps :)

i've never had problem with limewire..i've had it on 5 of my 6 computers... this one seems to have no problem with it, its not the music downloading that gets me

its the myspace's that wont load, plus i never have programs on for hours only aim that doesnt take that much up...i only run about 4 programs max at a time, lol so i dont see why its freezing...

computer keeps freezing im running a wireless connection to another pc, could that be a reason i keep freezing [newb question]

This is a worst case scenario, if your getting into the i-net throught the second pc, it's called a ad hoc network, which requires the other computer to be on and pass everything you want. You're held to that computer's specifications and to Microsofts i-net connection sharing limitations. It's a great "theory" but a pain in the ass to try to make it happen.

Your best bet is to hook your computer directly to the internet, and let the others slave off you through the wireless. Or you could use the wireless router properly, which is to hook the wireless through the modem and then let the all computers connect to the wireless.

I can't say for sure, but I don't think that's your problem.

I think it's Service Pack 2. I've proven this to myself on several occasions. Every time I install it, my connection gets crappy (even with the open connections fix/patch). As soon as I remove it, my connection revives again.

If you're computer savy enough to protect youself with a great firewall/anti-virus combo, and you have a nice spyware blocker, I'd remove SP2. It's seems to be aimed at novice users who can't protect themselves. I don't need someone else to limit the number of connections my system can have open at one time.

SP2 was designed around security, and stopping/limiting file sharing. It's not good for any p2p program.


If you're convinced that SP2 isn't the issue, disregard. :)
