I've got an issue that's been bugging me for weeks.
I believe this issue started after a major spyware infection, however my system was cleaned as per guidance from the HJT forum. Very often after leaving my system for a while when I come back to it, it has completely frozen and doesn't respond to anything. I am able to turn CAPS on and off, however end up having to hold the power button for several seconds to shut down the system and do a cold boot. I have also encountered similar freezing/stalling on occasion, while busy working.
My system is a Dell Inspiron 1501 Laptop: AMD Athlon 64 x2/1.7GHz with 1GB RAM and 120GB Hard Drive.
I hope someone can lead me in the right direction.
Thanks in advance.
