A few ideas to start:

Check the number of running processes and RAM usage through Task Manager and Resource Monitor.

Check msconfig startup tab to see how many things are running at startup.

Scan with something like Malwarebytes.

Test memory with Memtest86+

Test hard drive with checkdisk or drive manufacturer's downloadable utility

Possibly swap in known good components in case memory or hard drive is failing.

Im 100% positive that my pc is clean i did everything you say and it seems normal. This all started when i was playing a game of counter strike, got tired and took a break, when i log back into my computer i went on to youtube but then google chrome stopped working and my entire pc started freezing for no reason at all, i really hope it isnt a hard ware failure but im going to do a clean reinstall to see if that might solve the issue.

Which parts did you swap in to replace existing parts?

How many passes of MemTest86+ have you done in the last hour?

Stupid annoyance on SF
I'm getting this stupid thing when logging into SF and when clicking Any link in the forums. After dismissing it, it comes right back upon a new click, vary annoying since until it is click, no replies or edits can be made. :mad: IE9 exclusively, no 3rd party toy browsers.

Mouse Over Annoyance
Don't know if this is just me or if it's a specific Windows 7 issue. Navigating through Explorer sometimes you need to find out some information about a file. Hover your mouse over the file and you get information. I was looking to see if any of the tracks on an album were larger than expected...
