Windows 7: Random Windows freezing, no BSOD, while downloading

Random Windows freezing, no BSOD, while downloading


I've been working with Vir Gnarus over in the BSOD subforum, but he has said he sees an infected system. You can find the thread here:

Mulitple BSOD while downloading on Steam and general internet

Basically I'm having this issue where downloading through the SWTOR launcher and installing the updates freezes my computer. Sometimes the freeze is just everything stopping and sometimes the freeze causes my monitor to go white with colored bars. I also had the same problem with Nexus Mod Manager when downloading mods for Skyrim. However, I can download and install using Steam without problem, and I can download via uTorrent or Chrome without problem.

After posting this following Diagnostic report, Vir thinks my system is infected, however, I have not seen any issues with MSE or Mal-ware program.

Is this a 'home build' system?
Did you buy Windows License Type: OEM System Builder, or was it given to you to build your own system?

Let's see if you have some adware, not reported:

Download AdWareCleaner AdwCleaner Download to your desktop
1.Right-click on adwcleaner.exe and select Run As Administrator to launch the application.
2.Click on Delete button.
3.Confirm each time with OK.
4.Your computer will be rebooted automatically. A text file will open after the restart. Please post the content of that logfile in your reply.

Yes. Actually it's getting worse. Based on all the things I've tried over in the BSOD thread, the conclusion is the MB needs to be replaced so I RMA'd back to Newegg today. Go ahead and ignore this thread until the new MB comes.

Thanks for the help.
