    taskbar freezes (XP sp2 build 2600 (with SP3 updat

    Frequently my taskbar freezes. By this I mean that I am unable to use any portion of the taskbar. Quick Launch being inactive, I can can launch new programs or switch between open programs only by double-clicking on desktop (still active) OR using Alt-Tab OR using Task Manager (Ctrl-Alt-Del). This usually occurs when more than one program is active. I have only 2 X 512 Meg RAM installed. The problem is resolved only by a reboot.

    Use Task Manager and check the processes tab to see what is using your CPU.

    The list you supplied does not show CPU usage. Did you look at the Processes tab when you are having the problem to see what is using your CPU?

    Just checked. If I understand what you are asking, CPU usage is on-off crss (1-5); taskmgr (2); balance system idle

    Barry,
    What is meant by "(with SP3 updat" in the subject?

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    Re: taskbar freezes (XP sp2 build 2600 (with SP3 u

    This problem is occurring right now. You question was about CPU usage, not memory usage. I just looked at Processes in TaskManager and the CPU usage was a pretty constant 99 for system idle, 00 for everything else, but occasional flashing, no values, for csrss.exe and occasional 01 or 02 value for csrss.exe

    Yes, SP3 is in beta. I would do a uninstall of it and NOT use it again until it is released to the public. This may be the root of your problem.

    <P ID="edit" class=small>(Edited by DaveA on 22-Nov-07 09:10. Removed the reference to the file name of SP3)</P>Microsoft has done a roll-up of post SP2 updates that I learned about. It is called SP3, apparently currently in Beta state, to which I found a reference and was able to download.

    Re: taskbar freezes (XP sp2 build 2600 (with SP3 u

    Yes, my question was about CPU usage as that is often the culprit when a system is not responding well. I just noticed that you are running firefox. What version? Does the problem clear up if you terminate FF? Firefox has known memory managment issues.

    Re: taskbar freezes (XP sp2 build 2600 (with SP3 u

    the problem does not seem to be related to firefox, or, for that matter, internet connection in any way, since it sometimes occurs when I am not comnnected to the internet, or was not just before connected to the internet. I have notice that there is generally a "flickering" of my desktop screen just before I notice that it has freezed. I( wonder if the only way to resolve this is to do a reformat of my C: drive and reinstall windows, and then all the updates.

    <hr>"flickering" of my desktop screen <hr>

    Might try a different monitor as this may be a hardware issue. Also if you still have this issue with a different monitor you might try a different graphics card

    In addition to a monitor issue 'flickering' could be a power issue in general. Flaky power can cause all sorts of things to go wrong. Have you added or changed a lot of devices (internal or external) that get their power from the PC?
