Windows 7: Comp started freezing, but not crashing. No error message.

No. Wait for Driver Verifier to run its course. That way we can take the network driver off the suspect list, or not.

Just an update, performance deteriorated again while playing a game and hasn't returned. Verifier is still, to my knowledge, running although I don't know how to check its progress. Still have yet to have a BSoD since onset of the problem. Computer did auto download, install, and restart from a Windows update, not sure what if any impact that will have, but I can't imagine changing a variable mid test is good. Will update if anything else occurs.

Thats normal when verifier is running - make sure Verifier is still on and carry on for at least 24hrs.

Should I be doing anything specific to try to force a crash? I've just been leaving a decently graphics intensive game running while I'm AFK not really touching the keys. Is this alright or should I be giving it more input?

Just use the computer as you normally would - nothing extra is required.

After 24 hours of Verifier I had no BSoS. I restarted comp and ran MemTest86+ over night. 8th pass just completed with no errors.

There were some fixes applied earlier that might have helped.

Any crashes since then?

Since DV didn't cause any BSOD we can conclude that there isn't a driver issue on the system causing these issues.

Just to clarify, what do you mean by crash? BSoD? To my recollection this comp has never BSoD'd. It is still running unusably slow. It just freezes and unfreezes and/or runs really slow. I just popped open my web browser and it took about 2 minutes to open. Also I get the "!Windows Alert !Do you want to change the color scheme to improve performance? Windows has detected your computers performance is slow. This could be because there are not enough resources to run the Windows Aero color scheme. To improve performance, try changing the color scheme to Windows 7 Basic. Any change you make will be in effect until the next time you log on to Windows."
