Windows 7: 7 x64 mouse and keyboard randomly stop working.

For me it turns out the problem had NOTHING to do with my mouse or keyboard. I noticed that when this happened the clock would not change, meaning the whole system was frozen. After reviewing Event Viewer I found that I was getting an error involving Microsoft Security Essentials (MSE).

After Googling this problem, it turns out it's a very common issue and turned out to be the cause of my freezing. Since MSE couldn't start up properly during start-up the whole system would just stop. Following the "Microsoft approved" fix by deleting the offending file and rebooting solved this error. Since then my system hasn't froze on me once. *knock on wood*

My PC won't go into sleep mode either automatically or manually so I just leave it on all day (the screen will go off at the pre-determined time though). However, that's not my issue as I've learned to live with it. I'm just mentioning it because it could be related to the following issue that just...
