    HELP!!! Why does my computer keep locking....

    Why does my computer keep locking up? I have to turn it off, then restart in
    "last known good configuration".

    This happens every so often, but this morning I lost a boatload of work I
    had input into a spread sheet.

    HELP ME PLEASE! What can I do to stop this?

    What hardware do you have, what processes are running. What anti
    virus/firewall do you have on your system.
    What (if any) error messages do you have in the event viewer.

    NIK
