MS Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 64-bit


Please try the tutorial suggested by F5ing.

Also, I'd like for you to clean out your Event Logs for which I'll give a procedure.

if you are still having the problem, then we will take at the fresh logs for Critical events and Error events.


Step 1: Create a powershell script
Open NotePad.

Copy following into notepad:
Get-WinEvent -ListLog * -Force |
% { $_.logname;Wevtutil.exe cl $_.logname };
Wevtutil.exe cl system

Save as ClearEvents.ps1 in %userprofile%\desktop

Close Notepad

Step 2: Create a shortcut to have powershell run the script
on an empty spot on your desktop
Choose NEW -> Shortcut

In the box,
Enter powershell.exe & %userprofile%\desktop\ClearEvents.ps1

Type CLEAR EVENTS (or any name of your choice)
FINISH button

Step 3: Run the script
The shortcut must be run as administrator.
Choose Run as Administrator

If Powershell complains,then
Run PowerShell as administrator and set the script execution policy
type PowerShell | do NOT hit Enter |
right-click on PowerShell (at top of list) |
choose Run as administrator

Enter following commands:
Set-ExecutionPolicy remotesigned

You can now proudly declare yourself a PowerShell user and aficionado. Now all you need is a COMPUTER GEEK badge. Batch files are so blasť.

There is nothing magic about %userprofile%\desktop. If you already have a C:\Scripts folder, then you may prefer to store the ClearEvents.ps1 script there.

Want to stay in Powershell after running the script? Add -noexit to the shortcut’s target (right-click on the shortcut. Properties, Shortcut tab, Target field).
powershell.exe -noexit & %userprofile%\desktop\ClearEvents.ps1

You can now amaze your friends with your command of PowerShell!

I think my problem has something to do with my Realtek Audio HD audio drivers, cuz it freezes only when im playing music or using a youtube video in flash, so i think there's something to do with that, gonna uninstall all my audio components and see how that might work
