My Windows 7 Ultimate x64 Keeps Freezing

Just want to know if someone here can shed some light on to why my pc keeps freezing.

This has been an ongoing issue for the last 4 months. I just don't use my pc that much.

I have been watching a lot of youtube videos, and not even 1 to 2 minutes into the video the whole comp crashes. Also, it's not just youtube, its everywhere. WWE, IGN, GameTrailers.

What should I provide you guys to help me resolve this problem.

Thanks in advance.

Win 7 Ultimate 64-bit. SP1.

Hello there,

Are you getting any BSoD's?

There are many reasons why a PC " behaves" this way.
These annoying " gliches" may be caused by an overloaded hard drive, overworked CPU, Malware, running 2 AV 's, unnecessary data, Browser addons or you may have unnecessary programs running in the background etc....

Troubleshooting steps for you to try -

* Go to search, type device manager and look for any yellow warning markers.

* Download SuperAntiSpyware or Malwarebytes, run a full scan after you update.
* Run another Antivirus scan.

*Type event viewer, in search (by start button) > Windows Logs > Application & System.
Look for RED critical errors that say app hang, app crash, or anything that relates to the problem.
Note the event ID, and the source codes and Google search them.

* Make sure that you are not over heating.

* Make sure PSU is working properly.

* If overclocking, restore to original.

* Try in safe mode; report back if it works properly.


*Clean boot. You may discover what is causing your problem.
