I suggest that you go to Event Viewer...and look for errors with times approximating your PC freezes...and post all details of same here on the forum.

What is the Event Viewer, and Should I Care - Ask Leo! - http://ask-leo.com/what_is_the_event_viewe...uld_i_care.html

FWIW: http://www.file.net/process/npkcrypt.sys.html and http://spywaredlls.prevx.com/RRIAFH59050/NPKCRYPT.SYS.html

I suppose that I would think "malware" in your situation, but that's just the way that I perceive things.

If it walks like a duck, looks like a duck, and quacks like a duck - then it must be a duck. In other words, if you've got the symptoms of a malware infection, then a malware infection is the most likely cause of the problems.

I'd strongly suggest that you perform a couple of these free, online scans to ensure that you're not infected. The virus makers are sneaky and may have slipped one by you.

Be advised that some of these scanners will pickup things in "quarantine" from other anti-virus programs - so review the results carefully:

I work in a computer repair shop - and the most common reason for people visiting us is malware infections. And most don't even know that they're infected. They figure that good protection programs will keep them safe. That's just not the case. Virus writers are experts at fooling people into letting the bad stuff onto their system, and at circumventing the protections that are in place.

the boot-start- or system-start-driver couldn't get read: (i'm not the best to translate xD)
sptd

---
the service npkcrypt couldn't start. The fault:
The file wasn't found.

---
the driver have found an internal fault in its data (sptd)

the problem i got sounds like the W32/Versie.A Worm


Now the pc froze AGAIN third time in 2 hours now.... BUT in my eventlog i got nothing about those 3 anymore i think i fixed that... so npw im asking should i just format my C: or what can i do to prevent it from happening?
