Windows keeps freezing

    Anyone else have this problem? I get it periodically, usually when I've been using the computer a lot. I get the spinning beachball and the only way to stop it is to reboot. For some reason it then takes a dislike to that particular file and will keep freezing if I try to carry on working on it, also if I resave. If I leave the computer off for a day or so it seems to regain its temper.

    It's an iBook G4, 3 years old - I had it checked over last year and they said it was fine.

    This should not be in the Windows on the Mac section (that is for WindowsXP, 2000, Vista etc.)...I recommend opening Disk Utility, clicking your HD, then 'Repair disk permissions'.

    What operating system are you running (Tiger, Panther) ?

    uurgh - I mean WORD, not Windows. Word keeps freezing.

    I've done the repair permissions thing. The first time it helped for a while, then it started freezing again several months later (ie recently), and this time repair permissions made little difference. It's not doing it at the moment but I don't trust it...
