Windows 7: Computer sometimes freezes, makes weird static noises from the speaker

23 Oct 2013   #11

Windows 7

Also, to minimize the freezes and the noise, make sure to turn off everything that Sends/Retrieves Info. I turned off the Retrieve Information From The Internet-Option in Windows Media Player, helped a ton. There's a lot fishing-around on you own in Win 7, the more Automated Background Functions you can find and turn off helps. Though no windows-support-guy will ever tell you this, there's also a lot of unnecessary updates that can potentially screw up you Comp' too. I've only installed the SP1 update since i reverted Win 7 to Vanilla, that and turned off everything Auto, and though it still a bit cranky it's SO much better now.

Edit: I forgot to say that Win 7 doesn't like a lot of Third-Party stuff like; WinAmp, Firefox and 7zip. Either avoid too much of these programs or look up how to tweek them/Win 7. Also the Firewall don't like to add your program to it's allow-list, so you'll have to check and add them manually.
