Computer keeps freezing on startup

The problem is every time i start the computer after a few minutes it just randomly freezes and i have to restart. I have run virus scans and it says there is nothing wrong, i defragmented my hd it didn't work i even tried a system restore and I'm still having the same problem.

Any ideas?

Hey thanks! It seems to be working at the moment after finding a missing driver. But if it does freeze again obviously it wasn't the driver and i can check out your reply!

Thanks!

How to Save Event Viewer Instructions

1
Log into the computer using an account with administrator rights. Some event logs may be inaccessible to you if you are logged into Windows using an account with limited privileges.

2
Select "Control Panel" from the Start menu. Click "Administrative Tools." Double-click "Event Viewer" to launch the Event Viewer utility.


3
Navigate to the specific event log you would like to save using the console tree located on the left-side of the Event Viewer window. Branches within the console tree contain specific event logs. To expand a branch of the console tree, click on the leftward pointing arrow located next to the branch name. To collapse a branch of the console tree, click on the downward facing arrow located next to the branch name. The Windows 7 Event Viewer console tree is generally organized as follows:

Custom Views (branch)

--Administrative Events (log)

--Location Activity (log)

Windows Logs (branch)

--Application (log)

--Security (log)

--Setup (log)

--System (log)

--Forwarded Events (log)

Applications and Services Logs (branch)

--Hardware Events (log)

--Internet Explorer (log)

--Key Management Service (log)

--Media Center (log)

--Microsoft (branch)

----(The Microsoft branch of the Event Viewer console tree contains many sub-branches which hold many event logs such as the Group Policy "Operation" log)

--Windows PowerShell (log)

Subscriptions (branch)

4
Click on an event log to select it.

5
Go to the "Action" menu. Select "Save Events As."

6
Type the name you want to use for the saved event log file in the "File name" box. Open the "Save as type" drop-down menu to select the format in which you would like the log to be saved. For example, choose "*.txt" to save the log as a text document. Click "Save."

7
Repeat Steps 3 through 6 to save a different event log.

8
Close the Event Viewer.

I tried attaching the files like yu suggested but it just says it exceeds the forums limit or something pretty much the critical errors are the kernal-power which i'm assuming is all the forced restarts i've had to do. The rest of the errors differ from

CAPI2 (Failed extract of third-party root list from auto update cab at: <http://www.download.windowsupdate.com/msdownload/update/v3/static/trustedr/en/authrootstl.cab> with error: A required certificate is not within its validity period when verifying against the current system clock or the timestamp in the signed file.)

Service control managers (The Network List Service service depends on the Network Location Awareness service which failed to start because of the following error: The dependency service or group failed to start.)

DistributedCOM (DCOM got error "1084" attempting to start the service WSearch with arguments "" in order to run the server:{7D096C5F-AC08-4F1F-BEB7-5C22C517CE39})

OR

Microsoft Antimalware (Microsoft Antimalware Real-Time Protection feature has encountered an error and failed.
Feature: On Access
Error Code: 0x80004005
Error description: Unspecified error
Reason: The filter driver skipped scanning items and is in pass through mode. This may be due to low resource conditions.)
