    Nobody can help you "fix it", as M$ is unable to run any program "in the
    background" unless that program is a "service".

    If you gave some some specifics about your issue instead of such arm-waving
    generalities, someone might be able to help you better understand your
    problem and its potential causes.

    You're laboring under at least one misconception, probably more.

    Somebody just took me for a ride over my English when it was just a typo.
    But "potential" sir is in the future whereas the chap's problem is based on
    something that was done in the past. So how can that be "potential"?

    Somebody's girl friend turned him down and he took it out on me and I am
    taking it out on you.

    And WHO are you going to take it out on?! ;-)

    No, sir, I am neither angry nor a faggot but you certainly seem to be the
    latter AND what's more someone with a single cell passing for a brain!

    there are a number of
    reasons why windows
    would stall or freeze.

    what you might try is a
    freeware that either
    optimizes memory or
    defrags it.

    what it will do is to unload
    unused dll's from memory
    for programs that are no
    longer running.

    what is hoped to be
    accomplished is that if
    unused dll's are unloaded
    then your system will have
    more ram to run programs.

    as a suggestion,

    most of these types of
    freeware want to install at
    boot time or continuously run in
    memory.

    however, I recommend that
    you run and then close the
    freeware manually and run on
    a as needed basis like before
    you launch problematic
    programs or after you close
    them.

    These 'memory optimizers' or 'memory defragers' are nothing but pure
    snake oil!

    Using the caps-lock certainly won't make the caps key sink in any deeper on
    the keyboard except while you're pressing it.
