Windows 7: Crashing every 5 minutes

Crashing every 5 minutes

So uh, I installed Windows 7 today and it crashes almost every 5 minutes. Actually it freezes and I can't do anything - I can't open a task manager nor ALT+F4 etc.
Any help?

Welcome

A clean install or upgrade install? If you did not have to reinstall programs etc, it was an upgrade.

So what kind or install, see my post above? If it was clean and you have dump files follow Carls advice. If a upgrade, you just have to do it over and make a clean install.

I guess it was an upgrade because it kept my old XP files.

Did you have to reinstall any programs?

I do not know how you could do an upgrade from XP, it should have been a clean install.

Yes, because I saved 2nd disk and the programs were on 1st disk.
