program freeze

I have a problem that happens now and then.

When I some times start a program or Internet explorer they will freeze.
If I go to Task Manager/ applications the said thing is shown up twice.

As I said this does not happen all the time, but when it does it is a pain.

I wondered if anyone knows why this could be happening now and then.

Greetings,

It might be a case of spyware, adware, malware or even virus/trojan
related. First of all try scanning your computer from any spyware related
programs. Try the following programs:

1. SpyBot Search and Destroy - http://security.kolla.de/ (Recommended)
2. Adware - http://www.lavasoftusa.com/software/adaware/
3. Microsoft Anti-Spyware Beta 1 (Use at your own risk) -
http://www.microsoft.com/athome/security/spyware/software/default.mspx

If still doesn't go well, try scanning your computer from viruses or
trojans. Trend Micro Systems offers a free online scan which scans for the
latest trojans and viruses on the internet. URL -

If you already have an anti-virus scanner installed, try updating your
latest definitions and patterns and scan your computer.

I am running Zone Alarm security suite 5.5 and spy sweeper 4.0
I have done an online scan using Symantec and trendmicro and nothing has
been turned up.
As it is not a virus or Trojan (well not one that I could not find) I
wondered if anyone knows what else could be causing the intermittent
problem.
