How long have you had these problems?

Have you checked in Event Viewer to see what is listed that could provide clues as to what is going on?

Have you a System Restore point prior to this problem occurring?

I only got AntiVir and yes, it is updated regulary.
No Windows updates.
The laptop is slow for few weeks now, as i previously said i had some problems - couldn't boot windows, got an error saying it can't read from hard disk press alt ctr del to restart, then did a clean instal of windows 7, it worked good for a day or so, then it got slow, couldn't come out of hybernation, couldn't boot properly, and now all this freezing.
Got no sys restore point.
Yes i do the computer housework sometimes, did alot of it when it got this buggy.
Local area network
Got a DVD but not here, it's at home where i'm gonna go in a week
Had no BSODs
I'm not familiar with event viewer, so i don't really know what you want me to show or tell you.
Just did a memory check - it found nothing.

Yes, did that. Thanks. It took forever, but it worked and normal boot did not freeze so far. It still works kind of slow and with temporar freeze ups.
