WIN | type MSCONFIG | ENTER | STARTUP tab |
Uncheck ALL except for:

Sidebar    Microsoft Corporation    C:\Program Files\Windows Sidebar\sidebar.exe /autoRun
MSC    Microsoft Corporation    
"c:\Program Files\Microsoft Security Client\msseces.exe" -hide -runkey 


REBOOT!


You have just told Win 7 to not run unchecked programs at start up time.

You have not disabled the programs. They will be run when needed.

WIN = key with the Microsoft logo on top

ok I've done all the above in msconfig and ccleaner.

I've attached the file from powershell too

**also i was just checking my drivers and when i reinstalled the lan driver from the acer website, it says 'driver was not successfully installed' However if i plug an ethernet in it still works fine.

I don't seem to have had any more freezes since doing all of the above, although they were very random with no rhyme or pattern, so i won't rule it out completely. Any ideas on what it could've been though?

Should i start to re enable all of scheduled tasks and startups which i had 1 by 1? Or just leave them all off since i dont need them?

Thanks loads for all your help

Since now system is working, I recommend leaving the system be as is.

Be sure to create a system restore point and also to make a system image backup.

We have a tutorial on makiing a system restore point and here is a quick explanation:


CREATE A SYSTEM RESTORE POINT
Win | type Create Restore Point | ENTER |
CREATE | type a name for the restore point |
CREATE button | CLOSE | OK

WIN
is the key with the wavy Microsoft logo on top.



Here is a link to a tutorial on making a System Image Backup:
