I can't count the number of times that helps.
I tried searching the forums for an answer but they don't seem to apply. I've upgraded the ram, sound and video cards(Soundblaster Audigy,NVIDIA Geforce 6600)when my son wanted to play Sid Meirs Pirates and that works just fine now. But any of his games that have on line capability freeze up after a few minutes of play. I have a Dell Dimension 8300. I've tried defrag and spyware, etc. but the problem persists. Any ideas are appreciated.
