Windows 7 64-bit

yeah my system freezes up eventually at some point every time it is turned on... sometimes right away sometimes hours go by and then it freezes for seemingly no reason. Usually I hit the reset button and then it after I boot up in windows again it stays fine for a long time. It's a real pain in the @$$ and I dont know why it does it.

Windows 7 64 ultimate

My Old version of Windows 7 never froze. now my bran new Windows 7 freezes after 2 hours of non-use. After researching this, i found many many people are having this problem. I talked to Microsoft , they refused to acknowledge that this is a problem, they insisted it was my computer and my settings. However, it started freezing from the very first day of installation ,, whereas my older version had no freezing problems and the hardware has not changed. yep, same hardware no changes, yet Microsoft says it's my computer. No it's Microsoft trying to keep tabs on your computer when you're away from it.
It is the network activity and constant hard drive accessing that is freezing the computer.
