We have a 4 month old HP computer running Vista.  I have never had
trouble with HP computers before, and have never had a problem with
vista on my laptop - but this desktop is going to drive me to drink.  I
will be surfing around and all of a sudden, it is going nowhere and says
"stopped" on the bottom of the browser.  This happens on both IE and
Firefox.  Also  - when using Windows Mail, I click on an email and I can
see it flash quickly - but it will not open.  If I click
control-alt-delete/open task manager/ and then close the task manager,
stuff starts working again for awhile.  Then I can go about my business
for a few minutes or maybe even an hour more - and then it starts all
over again.  It REALLY acts up if I try to fill out an online form of
any kind - even online email such as gmail.

I have run our virus protection and about 5 different spyware programs. 
The problem still comes back.  I have uninstalled Firefox and
re-installed it just in case.  It just happened out of the blue.  I had
not downloaded anything new.

Any ideas?  I'd be most grateful.  Thanks!
