Question Computer is freezing up after installing new software?

I installed a network program and a system info program on peppermint ice and now when I type in my username and password the computer will freeze up and the number lock, scroll lock, and caps lock lights flash till I turn the computer off?

That sounds like a kernel panic.

What are the programs called that you are using?

Thanks for the help all.. I changed my OS to PCLinuxOS and it seems to be more stable than peppermint.

What I know.

Yea, a kernel panic is what it looks like we're looking at... I don't know much about that though...
