Open Event Viewer and look at Windows Logs. Look for events marked with red circle or yellow triangle, particularly the red circle.

You also might try completely uninstalling Eset and see that makes a difference. Eset has been know to cause problems on some systems.

I've got some red ones (SideBySide) seems to be windows movie maker?, i rarely use it, not sure why that is. Some yellow triangles, mainly DNS issues it seems. As for uninstalling Nod32, that's kinda scary, it has saved my behind quite some times.. maybe i'll do that this weekend and just plow through some of my movies and not surf the web :)

Install MSE and turn on Windows firewall until you get this sorted out. Eset has definitely caused LAN problems for others. Once you get it sorted out, you can try Eset again if you want to. Don't run without any anti-virus and without a firewall.

Done. How does MSE compare to Esets Nod32? By that i mean, trojan and virus detection.


Also, so far, no crashes! Will update later.

MSE may be weaker on Trojan detection than Eset. Download and install the free version Malwarebytes. Scan your system with it on some kind of a regular basis. It is very good at picking up Trojans. I scan weekly as I do not have risky surfing habits.

All anti-virus and anti-malware programs have strengths and weaknesses. There is no "best". Your own particularity surfing habits are the most important factor for internet security.

Alrighty, problem seems to be solved. No crashes after uninstalling Eset Nod32 antivirus... and just as i paid for another year

Think i'll go drop them a line via email and ask what's up.

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...
