Visit Adobe's website and install the latest Flash. Also make sure you have the latest video card driver from http://game.amd.com.

You said it yourself. That could be the cause of your problem. If it wasn't happening before the overclocking, I suggest you to put your configuration back to the factory's default and see what happened.

I already did that, I told you in my first post.

I have done this, but I could try it again. But what's so important about flash player?

Youtube works by using the Flash plugin.

It did not work, my computer still freezes at random times. When it does freeze I can sometimes move my mouse, and sometimes not, and everything else is completely frozen. It does not appear any "Not Responding" on any program.

Type msinfo32 into the start menu search box and hit enter. Ctrl+s on the screen that opens. Zip or rar the saved file and attach to a post.

I'll be able to figure out what's happening this way.

Should I do that after a freeze or can I do it now?

In the start menu, go to all programs and then startup folder. Delete:

WinampAgent
SunJavaUpdateSched
ATICustomerCare
StartCCC (<<<you can leave this if you like CCC starting with Windows)


In the start menu, type services.msc and hit enter. Disable the following services:

AMD External Events Utility
Offline Files
Windows Defender (You already have Avast and this is not needed too.)


Reboot after. If the problem isn't fixed, uninstall Avast and then test. If good, re-enable Windows Defender.

As I already said, this is most likely a harddrive problem, you need to test your harddrives. Installing drivers is not the same thing as testing your harddrives.

If you let me know what kind of harddrive you are using I can probably find a program to test it with. Or you can keep spinning your wheels playing around with drivers,. which ever you prefer.
