My ongoing Windows 7 freeze part 3

You may have seen several of my threads a while ago about a hardlock/freeze, i downloaded a hotfix and followed several users solutions to the problem.
The hotfitx was supposed to fix it yet the freeze appeared 2 weeks or longer later.
This is a very vague error and a very rare occurance.

Please follow - Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions

Although, your not having BSODs, the files will provide some useful troubleshooting information.

In the meantime, I recommend -

Run Driver Verifier to scan for any corrupted drivers which may be causing problems, this program works by running various stress tests on drivers, in order to produce a BSOD which will locate the driver; run for least 24 hours:

I will run driver verifier tomorrow for the whole day since i just reinstalled my os hoping to fix it.
I also forgot to add that this was all happening on the other hard drive before this.

Your spec show this; OS Dorset. I'm sorry but I have no idea what that is. Could you post a site that explains the operating system.

Good, and you may have hard drive issues if it was happening on the other hard drive too.

I can confirm that the freeze has happened today, i even waited 30 mins if it responded.
Also i didnt get to verifier because of it.
Update: it seems to be happening often not sure why seeing as its a fresh install

Getting the files from the diagnostic now will upload shortly.

Driver Verifier will only create a dump file on the event of a BSOD, and Driver Verifier will only create a BSOD on the event of a problem being detected with a driver. I would disable Driver Verifier now.

Install Service Pack 1:Service Pack 1 has provided many security and stability updates for Windows 7, which would be highly beneficial for your system.

There's quite a few of these errors in your Event Log, are you reading from a CD/DVD when the computer freezes? Have you tried disconnecting the CD/DVD drive from the motherboard and PSU?
