Windows 7: Crashes and freezing, no BSOD, possible hardware issue?

Please only use versions of Windows you got from Microsoft and not any version you've "found."

Using your "found" version is the cause of your issues.

What makes you think he "found" his version?

Hey Ken...

It's because Windows creates the dumps by default and hacked versions have that turned off at default...so you can assume it's also laced with malware.

And if your reading skills were as good as your apparent inability to provide any help you might have noticed that I wrote that this is the Release Candidate. I haven't purchased a retail version yet since its potentially a christmas gift i might recieve.

Rebooted and tried finding a dump file but could not. No minidump folder or .dmp files in C:/Windows

Help? I'm really starting to worry this is hardware.
Can you check in your system control panel>advanced system settings>start up and recovery? Nake sure write system log is checked
Will do so tonight and let you know. Thanks.

Come on dude. I help more people here than you'd ever know. I don't want to argue but your RC could be hacked too since you didn't get it from official source. You should be thanking me because it's my only interest to help and not put down anyone.

Same as this very recent thread: https://www.sevenforums.com/crashes-d...g-problem.html

Alright let me get this straight. Your 61 posts as of this reply qualify you as "helping more people than you'd ever know?"

So tell me Legacy, have you seen my install personally? Have you seen the DVD I burned to check the file contents? Did you see the release candidate iso I have on my hard drive that I downloaded legitimately from Microsoft when it was officially released? Do you have absolutely anything to help me with this problem aside from "you didn't get it from official source?" No?

You are now welcome to stop participating in my thread since you are obviously of no help to me.

Kthnxbai!

Buddy...stop with attitude please. Don't go by my post count. There are facts you do not know.

I can tell you are using a version not from Microsoft by your issues. I am pointing this out to help you, not hurt. If I am incorrect, I sincerely apologize. But I do have to wonder why you didn't immediately post this when you saw my response as I posted it.

I have already helped you in so many ways. I am a really cool dude so please respect that and such.

Did you uninstall your antivirus yet?

And again I ask: how do you know I have a pirated version of the Release Candidate?

In case my last post was unclear I will restate it for you (with emphasis): I DOWNLOADED THE RELEASE CANDIDATE FROM MICROSOFT.
