Sorry for opening this old thread again but some other things came across since. Strangely the freeze happened even when the external hard drive wan't plugged in, I'll give it that it only happened 1 since it was unplugged. Secondly I want to say I use Chrome and I have like 20-26 tabs opened constantly and whenever the it's plugged in I turn the PC on and open Chrome it takes way longer then without the hard drive.

Could any of you tell that what is causing it to do this ? PS I did a format to it but it didn't help it.
