Hmm, check security permissions for hosts file (windows\system32\drivers\etc\) - Admins and System Full Control - Users read, read & execute
Also open it and see if there are any entries not-commented out.


Also a disk check if you haven't already done so - Disk Check

this is my hosts file:
Code:
# Copyright (c) 1993-2009 Microsoft Corp.
#
# This is a sample HOSTS file used by Microsoft TCP/IP for Windows.
#
# This file contains the mappings of IP addresses to host names. Each
# entry should be kept on an individual line. The IP address should
# be placed in the first column followed by the corresponding host name.
# The IP address and the host name should be separated by at least one
# space.
#
# Additionally, comments (such as these) may be inserted on individual
# lines or following the machine name denoted by a '#' symbol.
#
# For example:
#
#      102.54.94.97     rhino.acme.com          # source server
#       38.25.63.10     x.acme.com              # x client host

# localhost name resolution is handled within DNS itself.
#    127.0.0.1       localhost
#    ::1             localhost
file is "archive" with full control for this:
System,
admin (my account with admin rights), a
administrator (internal windows admin accont, but it's disabled)

there is no more users, even guest is disabled

I mean right click the hosts file - properties - security
In that page admins and System should be Full Control and Users Read + read & Execute

They seem to be alright.

Would you mind starting in "Safe Mode with Networking", maybe we can observe the freeze there too if it is Internet services related.

if i have got freeze in normal mode i can hold powerON to push PC goes OFF
then enter in safe mode with networking and work without problems even for hours then after i reboot again to normal mode i have to wait same 15minutes until system unfreeze itself.

It's very very strange for me, like virus but system is 100% clean. I'm sure it's driver or KB update or NET or something else problem which case such 15minutes break. Before 2years it was about 6minutes now it's 15.
I can reinstall all system but i;m sure i will again install same software and one of them case such freeze.

Did it always freeze like this? It shouldn't be doing that, ever. Only during the very first moments of desktop perhaps - since many things try to start at the same time, even that wouldn't be a freeze but just slow responding. But still a total freeze is not normal, even for 6 minutes.

You already have an image of your HDD right? Perhaps try a repair install - Repair Install (it will reset Windows Updates and device drivers) and see if it is fixed, you can restore the image if it doesn't help
