This is the preferred, best way to upload an image or a file to a post. Press the Windows logo ALT key and PrntScrn at the same time, this will capture the active window to use in Paint or your preferred graphics editor.

You may also upload a photo or image you already have as you would a file, without using the Snipping tool.


To me it does look a bit "off" around the edges of the furry object and the background in the center should be orange.

alright, I always wondered how to print screen the active window. If I do get any crashes I'll let you know.

I need to re-write that, it should say ALT+PRNTSCRN keys.

Right, everything has been fine since I uninstalled Physx about 2 weeks ago just after I last posted here. Today, listening to music on Youtube and playing a game my computer just froze. Now I really don't think it's hardware or anything because 2 solid weeks with constant use and no problems. I honestly don't have any other ideas. It's so baffling I can't get my head around it.
the only thing I've found is on the event viewer which are 4 File system Filters being loaded at the exact time of the freeze which are 'SymEFA', 'FileInfo', 'eeCtrl' and 'BHDrvx64'.
Any ideas anyone?

I hate to say it but it may be because of Norton 360. I use Norton Internet security with no problems, but the 360 has too many tweaking options.

If it is Norton that's causing it I'm not bothered anyway, I'm going to switch to bullguard. In fact I was going to anyway later this week.

I know this is a bit off topic but I want to get in to debugging more. I'm reading Windows Internals and I go on a few different threads and help people out as best I can, I go on a couple of other forums now and then but I have to say, this is by far the most difficult issue I've seen. I've never found a definite cure so far for my PC and it's a year old.

Debugging is up there with rocket science and brain surgery, My best wishes to you.
If you haven't found our section on it, there is a lot of info here:

I just find it very interesting. I mean I've had a lot of BSODs and freezes since I've had my pc which has inspired me because I know how frustrating it is to have all these problems and that there are many other people out there that need help with it.

It is interesting I agree. I look at the reports generated by others and see if I can figure out where in the world they come up with the causes/solutions.
I have asked some BSOD team people and got good feedback. Others reply as if the burped up the Oxford English Dictionary.

Hi. Like it says in the title, my computer keeps freezing randomly. I've noticed it happens pretty often if I have too many tabs up in Chrome or am just trying to copy files over to my external hard drive. There's no BSOD; it just forces me to shut down manually. I've done most of my important...
