I recently recovered from a few errors including a BSOD. I activated driver
verifier and let it do it's thing, found some faulty drivers
and replaced/updated them. I deactivated driver verifier after some running time, and now while my computer is running fairly quick, it tends to hang and sometimes perform uncharacteristically sluggish. I'd like to figure out where the hangs are coming from and get it back to running normally.
The sluggish running isn't consistent but when it happens it consists of: occasionally stuttering, freezes/hangs, and just running uncharacteristically slow
I have tried:
Cleaning out the computer, its dust-free.
Sweeping for malware, on multiple scanners in safe mode, its virus free.
Cleaning registry and HD with CCleaner
I tried installing updates. Installing updates, I was able to get through MOST of the updates, but KB2545698, KB2547666, and KB2604229 fail with Error 8024200D.
I was able to install SP1 and everything else.
Hangs occur more frequently while running browsers or playing music, not sure if that matters.
Any help would be appreciated!
