Weird problem with sisters PC...
So, I encountered a problem I've never seen before. My dad gave my sister his old PC, put Windows XP SP2 on, and off she went. She had me install some games on it because it gave her some DX errors (had to update it). While I was doing that, I kept noticing that things were...well, odd. It's hard for me to describe all of what it is doing.
Basically, you can't drag icons on the desktop. They return to their original place. Every like 10 seconds of using Firefox 3, it freezes and you can't click anything on Firefox. Yet, simply minimizing it then restoring it will fix the issue for another 10-20 seconds. Then, stuff will freeze in explorer itself. Can't bring up the task bar, can't open icons...I have to hit the windows key to bring the task bar up, or bring up the task manager then close it before anything will work.
I have a small hunch that it could possibly be FF3, but I have several other PC's using FF3 and tons of friends with it with no similar issues at all.
I just did a fresh format 2 days ago and it was doing it again a little while after formatting.

Keep in mind this computer was working 100% fine like 5 months ago when my dad had it, before building his new one.
