i have 2 computers connected up to a adsl router, one of the machines would not work if connected to the router because everytime it was connected the pc would lock up and all i could do was reset. i fixed this problem by sticking the xp disk in and running sfc /scannow to check if the protected files were ok, after that had finished, the machine stopped freezing and i was able to surf the net on it like before. the problem i have now is if i go into network neighbourhood and put a file in a shared folder it freezes, also freezes when the other machine tries to send a file to it where as the machine im using the folder just locks up, i have a printer connected to my main computer i use the most and the other machine also freezes when u try to print,

Any idea whats happening,
doubt if its a hardware problem
