Random "not responding" errors

I installed windows 7 a few weeks back (upgraded from XP) and ever since quite often my programs stop responding for 30-40 seconds and then continue working as usual... its quite odd and very annoying anyone else have the problem and know of a fix?

Windows 10, Home Clean Install
 
 

I think that if you have the patience to try the clean boot, you may find the cause of your problem

How to troubleshoot a problem by performing a clean boot in Windows Vista or in Windows 7

Did you do an upgrade or a clean install? If you had to reinstall your programs, it was a clean install.

Also check your memory, take the memory diagnostic test. Just type that in search.

Also check for errors. Event viewer in search.

Good luck

It was a clean install. prior to 7 I was still using XP.

Memory shouldn't be the problem everything worked perfectly fine prior to installing windows 7.... there's a chance but I doubt it.

Also check for errors. Event viewer in search.

errors:

This is the error with the most events more then once on everyday so I assume this is the problem.

8003 bowser system

The master browser has received a server announcement from the computer DONS-PC that believes that it is the master browser for the domain on transport NetBT_Tcpip_{0EE8FF39-FB91-45B7-A32E-CCFC24EDC769}. The master browser is stopping or an election is being forced.

(this info was just from the first error on the list)

other event IDs include: 35, 63, 1013, 7009, 8193

Hello, Welcome to SF,

Can you post the MSINFO32 file

Quote:
MSINFO32:
Please go to Start and type in "msinfo32.exe" (without the quotes) and press Enter
Save the report as an .nfo file, then zip up the .nfo file and upload/attach the .zip file with your next post.

If you're having difficulties with the format, please open an elevated (Run as administrator) Command Prompt and type "msinfo32 /nfo C:\Users\Public\Desktop\TEST.NFO" (without the quotes) and press Enter. Then navigate to the C:\Users\Public\Desktop directory to retrieve the TEST.NFO file. If you have difficulties with making this work, please post back.

Good Luck,

The BSOD problem was caused by a bad wireless card driver and that's been fixed.
