Hello again, TSG.

The system is my mother-in-law's computer, a newish HP running XP with current updates (Auto Updated every day)

I apologize in advance for this. I cannot stay at her house today. She will be responding using my account. She knows enough about computers to understand any instructions given to her and if she has questions she can call me.

She says the issues usually seem to happen toward the end of the day, but truely, it happens at any time of the day. The computer exibits unresponsive behaviors... The desktop seems responsive...icons are selectable, but unmovable and unopenable. The taskbar seems responsive and programs minimize and restore but remain inactive and unresponsive. Ctrl-Alt-Delete doesn't bring up the Task Manager. She waits hours for the computer to respond and finally she gives up and reboots. It reboots quickly and runs smoothly but it eventually and inevitably returns to it's problematic state.

I am aware that it had "My Web Search (zwinky)" installed, it was "uninstalled" via Add/Remove Programs; however, I know this rarely rids the a 'puter of all it's problems.....so, here's the HJT log.
