Windows 7: Random freezes appearing

10 Jul 2011   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 x64
Random freezes appearing

I seem to have an issue as of late with random freezes in various intervals where everything hangs for a period of 1-3 seconds.

This had only started happening in the past 2 days, with the same settings and programs I've been running for months now without problems.

I have not made any modifications to the system, nor have I installed/uninstalled any programs. This happens even when my computer is idle with only winamp running.

Comodo, MWB, SAS and Spybot all return clean, HDD defragmented also.

This only happens on Windows 7, and does not happen if I boot into Ubuntu.

Maybe these ideas may help

Here are my solutions to freezing, and an excellent article, which I hope is of some help
Go to search type device manager and look for any yellow warning markers
Download and run malwarebytes, a full scan after you update
Run antivirus scan
Check memory with memtest86
Make sure that you are not over heating.
Try in safe mode; report back if it works properly.
Try a clean boot
Make sure PSU is working properly
If overclocking, restore to original
Test hard drive at company website.
Test in safe mode, does it still happen?
Try with clean boot..
