My Windows 7 Ultimate installation has been hanging lately. I don't mean crashing. I mean, it stops responding.
OK, I'm a mean old user that often does not reboot for days. Worse, I use my computer a lot. I typically have 20 or more windows open during the day with things that I am currently working on (websites, etc.) or Office files that I am using (job hunt).
Now, typically, I walk away from the computer, and when I come back everything is fine and I just continue working were I left off. But occasionally, I find that my start menu is frozen. I can sometimes close out a visible windows (hit the X in the corner), but not always. Sometimes these windows are hung too.
But when I look at the eventlog, today, the only event of the last hour was an informational message "The system uptime is 240801 seconds."
No other events appear until the time that I had to hit the power button and force a shutdown.
What should I be doing to figure out the cause of the freeze? Thanks.
