Fixes I have tried but did not seem to work:

- rolled back the video driver to 180.48

The way my 7 freezed:

- the whole system just hanged at random intervals, for up to 1 minute at a time, during which nothing responded.
- this happened whether I used a browser or not, although it seems that it hanged quicker if I had used a browser.


Note to moderator: make this thread sticky, it's quite useful.

hello, i only registered to say thank you.
i had random freezing all the time, i didnt know what to do, what is causing it, i tried reinstalling 1000x times, tried both 32bit and 64bit, nothing changed. i was really frustrated, then i found this thread and my problem is gone
i did all the things mentioned above, and i think it was a the video card driver that fixed for me aswell. i also had a creative audigy 2 card which i removed after i installed the driver so either that or the driver fixed it, and its all working perfectly (except for Gtalk, which freezez after i start it but i dont care that much)

so thanks again for this thread, now my pc is working as it is intended im so happy


im a bit afraid to update video card drivers for now, i might try it in 3-4 months.

since i couldnt figure out whats the reason of the crashes, i leave my config info here, so if anybody with the same hardware experiences the random freezing, he'll know what to do.

Glad you solved the problem.
I had since updated my video driver to 191.07 and it seems that the freezing issue has been solved.

Hi. I registered at this lovely forum for this very thread.
sorry if i'm bumping a dead/old/closed thread

I have the same problem as virtually everyone else and actually have the exact same problem as someone else being my system freezes when viewing anything 'flash' based in my browser (FF, IE, Chrome).
I've had IP Helper disabled and I'm running off the 195.xx drivers on my nvidia 9600gt.
I've literally restarted my system after it froze only to have it freeze again when I restore the last pages from my interrupted browsing session (Encyclopedia Metallum set it off the past few times).

So is the suggestion of 'rolling back' to a previous vista display driver set the working?
is there something else or new updates to this?

Clean install / Win7 64
MSI K9N2 - 4 gigs ram - Nvidia 9600gt
AMD Phenom 9950 Quad - 2.6ghz
onboard sound (removed Audigy2zs from previous assumption it was source of problem)

Well, you could try to rollback to 180.48 or older. You could also try reinstalling your flash addons with older flash versions, see www.filehippo.com for that.

Hello!!!

I guess that our mobo is the root of every trouble! I have an Abit AB9 , with a dual core processor E6700, 2 GB of RAM and a GeForce 8600GT graphics card! I have the same problem, whenever i had a browser window open or even msn sometimes, everything was freezing and i had to reboot my pc.
I'll try to rollback the driver, install all the new ones for the mobo and disablethe IPhelper and i'll tell you what happened!

Thanks for the existence of this topic

Hopefully this helps someone. I noticed everyone seemed to have Nvidia GPU's and did some research. I also noticed 64bit OS seems to be an issue as well.
I've found upgrading my drivers and flash by following all this:
FLAWLESS FLASH VIDEO
has seemed to work for me, I've tried the sites that trigger the freeze and haven't seem to have one yet.
Oh - an if you follow my suggestion or choose to roll back remember to run Adobes uninstaller of flash just to be safe.

I got mad with the freezing issues and tried to install ubuntu over windows 7. I had the same freezing problem over the installation. I finally unplugged all my usb devices and the problem was located on the wireless mouse :S What to say???

Well, it's time to laugh our as*es out! Seriously!! As I have said before, I have a desktop PC. I've made everything I found in the forums for the freezing issue, and nothing happened. It continued freezing. But i have forgotten a thread, which contained the solution of changing the power saving option from balanced to high performance. I did so and everything stopped freezing!! I can now be happy with my windows 7!! Guys, try it! I was about to throw my desktop pc in the sea and it was such a silly issue :P
