My Old version of Windows 7 never froze. now my bran new Windows 7 freezes after 2 hours of non-use. After researching this, i found many many people are having this problem. I talked to Microsoft , they refused to acknowledge that this is a problem, they insisted it was my computer and my settings. However, it started freezing from the very first day of installation ,, whereas my older version had no freezing problems and the hardware has not changed. yep, same hardware no changes, yet Microsoft says it's my computer. No it's Microsoft trying to keep tabs on your computer when you're away from it.
It is the network activity and constant hard drive accessing that is freezing the computer.
