    Asus u56e Laptop Hangs/Freezes


    I have an Asus u56e laptop I got back in December 2011, and recently I did I clean reinstall of my system because it kept freezing and locking up while simply just browsing the web and listening to iTunes. I don't use this laptop for games, but after the clean install, I updated all my drivers, software, windows updates, etc. and I still get hangs and freezes that last 5 seconds to sometimes a full minute and all I'm doing is listening to music and browsing websites with maybe two or three tabs open in Firefox. I really have absolutely no idea what could be wrong so I came here seeking any kind of much needed help and assistance. I don't have a lot of programs installed and I don't run a lot of programs at once, just maybe one or two apps usually. My problem is I will be browsing on Firefox listening to music, then iTunes will hang for a few seconds and the music freezes, then Firefox freezes too sometimes for a few seconds also, then it goes back to normal, and this happens very very frequently to the point of frustration and I simply don't understand why a new clean laptop would have an issue such as this. Bad hard drive? Bloatware from Asus? I haven't the slightest idea, but any help would be much appreciated! Thanks in advance.

    CCleaner | Tools icon | Startup button | Windows tab |
    click on Save to text file button (bottom right side) |
    accept Startup.txt as file name | SAVE button

    list of SCHEDULED TASKS

    CCleaner | Tools icon | Startup button | Scheduled Tasks tab |
    click on Save to text file button (bottom right side) |
    enter Scheduled Tasks as File name | Save button

    List of INSTALLED PROGRAMS

    CCleaner | Tools icon | Uninstall button |
    click on Save to text file button (bottom right side) |
    accept install.txt as File name | Save button


    UPLOAD the startup.txt file

    REMOVAL OF P2P PROGRAMS

    There are signs of one or more P2P (Peer to Peer) File Sharing Programs on your computer.

    As long as you are using any form of P2P networking to download files, you can anticipate malware infestations.

    References citing the risk of using P2P programs:
    How cyber criminals infect victims via P2P with pirated software on Vimeo
    Malware: Help prevent the Infection
    Perils of P2P File Sharing
    How to Prevent the Online Invasion of Spyware and Adware

    I strongly recommend that you uninstall:
    µTorrent
    BitTorrent
    Vuze

    I await your report that all is well.

    If it isn't then once again run ccleaner to generate a fresh set of files to upload.
