    Over the past few days I have been having a problem launching some programs if the PC has been on for an extended time (hours, not days). I double click on the icon on the desktop, the launching window appears, and then the program hangs. I can simply use ctrl+alt+delete to close the offending program. If I reboot the PC the program will open normally.

    Any idea whats going on?

    I am using XP and all updates have been installed.

    Thanks in advance for any help that may be provided.

    I had tried that a day or so ago and the problem cleared for a while and is now back.

    WELL, I rolled the system back to March 8 which was before the problem began and its still a problem. Surely one of you savvy folks have some ideas about what could be causing this and what I might do about it.

    Please, pretty please with sugar on top.
