Computer Freezes When on Desktop

Hey there, When the desktop shows. It's working for like a minute or two.
Then after I click around, it just freezes and nothing works. I can't even click the desktop, just freezes. Not too sure why, on my other computer.

You could try an uninstall of Bit Defender, just to see if that resolves the problem. Or you could do a System Restore to a time/date before you installed Bit Defender.

Or could be a hardware issue. Really need more info on your system/problem.

boot in safemode, check things happened in event viewer (Start, run, eventvwr). You may also run ccleaner to clean your registry for corrupt registry files and windows temp files.
