Constant Freezing up

crash dump file: C:\Windows\Minidump\021011-26114-01.dmp
This was probably caused by the following module: rdyboost.sys (rdyboost+0xFCC0)
Bugcheck code: 0xC5 (0x2CA8, 0x2, 0x0, 0xFFFFFFFF82B24795)

Bug check description: This indicates that the system attempted to access invalid memory at a process IRQL that was too high.
This appears to be a typical software driver bug and is not likely to be caused by a hardware problem. This might be a case of memory corruption. More often memory corruption happens because of software errors in buggy drivers, not because of faulty RAM modules.
The crash took place in a standard Microsoft module. Your system configuration may be incorrect. Possibly this problem is caused by another driver on your system which cannot be identified at this time.

You have 4 GB of RAM and you're not running 64 bit?

Also, if you can, load Safe Mode and go to Start, Run, then type: "services.msc" without the quotes. Check to see if ReadyBoost is enabled and running and set to Automatic. If it is running, try disabling it then restarting.

Open an administrator-enabled command prompt window (Start, Run, type: cmd) and type: "sfc /scannow" at the prompt without the quotes. Do you have any system restore points? Is this a recently fresh install of Windows?

I had this same problem with readyboost on my system. The problem is, there is no way to uninstall the feature once you have enabled it. And turning it off for a drive doesn't get rid of the filters and drivers it installs. I only recovered by doing a system restore back to before I had enabled it.

if you delete it, since it is a .sys driver, windows may fail to start.

If you have a system restore point, I suggest trying a System Restore. If System Restore doesn't work, try doing a repair with the Windows 7 Installation disc. Nothing is guaranteed to work, but GeneO had success with a system restore so maybe you will also.
