What I'd like to know is, what steps would a profesional take to find this issue?
I've ran programs looking for spyware and viruses and seem to be clean:
The strange thing is that, this only happens after my computer has been off for a few hours, and in the first 5 minutes of starting it up, it freezes completely, you can't move the mouse, pull up the task manager or anything.
I power it down and back up, and normally I'm fine for hours on in, its just always that initial start up, the question is why, and how would you look for the source of the problem?
Thanks in advance
