You might want to remove live hotmail and get the thunderbird email client. It supports hotmail and is comparable to outlook express. you could get it here

julian,

Your hardware is sufficient for the job, thus, I'll pursue software.

Run CCleaner, both the Cleaner and Registry portions thereof, and don't fear the computer will not crash and burn. To calm all fears, CCleaner is going to ask you if you want to save a copy of the registry before it "cleans".

Now, to help me get an idea of what all is running, then do following:
LIST OF STARTUP PROGRAMS USING CCLEANER


CCleaner | Tasks icon | Startup tab | click on Save to text file button (bottom right side)

Using the PAPER CLIP icon in the top panel of a Message Reply window, attach the .txt file generated by CCleaner.

Thanks for your advice chaps, surprisingly whatever the issue was it has resolved itself and no longer freezes firefox, i would say it was happening on both the desktop and the laptop so its possible the fault was at windows live end, anyhow im just glad it works now, i have trillian and it gives me email notifications and is set to open in firefox so it was a nuisance to start messing about reconfiguring not only a new email client but also trillian.
