There are no extra files to get rid of, the problem was there from the clean install.

Did a scan with S&D, no probs, did a scan with Nod32, no probs. BIG SIGH I don't know what to do.

as Arg mentioned, and me too it's not the browser. We both tried different browsers.

Arg, did you also disable the IPhelper service in services.msc?

No, does it help?

well, as you also have noticed the freezing isn't exactly predictable. I also put my puter to sleep to only wake it if i do some actual surfing/work.

So it sleeps more then not

Given these caveats i haven't had a freeze since i disabled the Iphelper service (and unticked ip6 over ip4 in properties)

Fingers crossed, i'll now in a couple of days. But (or this is wishful thinking) overal the DNS lookup seems quicker now.

Hmmm, could you tell me how to disable the IPhelper?

type services.msc in the search bar, you get a list with all running services.
Scroll down till you find: IPHelper, right click and choose disabled from the dropdown menu. click on Stop to stop it.

Well I haven't had a crash since this morning, disabling the iphelper is just an addon... I think Windows solved the problem by itself. When I woke up I had 3 updates ready to be installed, one of them was an update for my WLAN PCI adapter driver, nothing big just 300 kb, however I really hope that solved the problem, if not then I hope disabling the iphelper did. Haven't had a crash so far but still pesimistic since there were periods without freezes already that deceived. All that remains is to wait and hope...
