Help! My computer that I've had since '09 has been freezing up every few seconds at startup, for example, the start button glows on mouse over and when i click the start menu doesn't come up, then if I move my mouse the windows logo is still glowing, same goes for the notifications triangle. Other items would freeze too, such as the wifi icon in the notification bar and gui items on my running programs.
My computer defragments itself every Wendsday (btw, does it defragment itself if it's logged off?) and I'm afraid of clicking on something in the fear of it locking up on me! It also studders my games (but I don't have a low frame rate) and freezes Steam VERY ofter (although, I think that's just a problem with Steam)
