scan for adware or spyware on your system. there are several such scanners on CNet downloads. also, try enabling the firewall on Windows XP and monitor what programs are trying to make connections to the Internet.
When I do a search, after a moment the system crashes. I hit Control,Alt,Delete and see that the program is not running. I check it and hit end task. It is a repeating cycle. What can I do to correct this problem?

When I do a search or when surfing the system will freeze "program not running". I go to Task Manager: ^AltDel - click program not running and click end task. It will end and give me the messages above.
I have check for a virus, none present. I have removed all programs on load up in task manager and this did not help.
The only thing that has helped is to do a "restore" and this will work for a day then the problem returns but not as serious as before, but it is back.
I have tried looking in the registry, but to no avail. Once before when I looked at the registry, I could read lines but now it is like seeing two windows, and the one on the left has several items and the one on the right has only one. Being afraid, I got out.
Any suggestions as to why the freeze or crash?
