Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
new PC sporadic hanging in use or at login :-(

Hi guys,

Recently purchased a fairly decent spec PC from OCUK and after a week or so it randomly freezes during use, or hangs straight after i enter login password - no BSOD though.

I initially thought it was hardware: SSD HD or RAM, but it seems to run and login fine when booting from safemode.

I would like to try and diagnose the problem myself (with help from sevenforums) and as a last resort - phone the OCUK call centre......

would love some advice on how to go about diagnosing this!!! I've had a look round the event viewer and see there are a whole load of admin errors, but have no idea what these are or if they are actually an issue. Exampes are:

DCOM got error 1084
dependancy service or group failed to start
custom dynamic link libraries are being loaded for every application
audit events have been dropped by the transport.0

I dont know if these errors are geniune or down to me having to force power off the machine after it freezes etc.

Many thanks for any help and advice!!
