At first I thought it was just a browser issue. Probably a firefox bug or something it seemed. However, i also eventually got this to happen in IE as well.
I've eliminated the following as the source of the problem:
Specific browser (it does it in firefox and ie)
I've uninstalled completely everyone of those and the problem still occurs in both firefox and IE. Also, nothing is ever logged in event viewer when this happens. It just completely freezes up, i'm unable to do anything and when i reboot, event viewer has nothing for me. Doesn't have any malware or any signs of malware at all. Have tried disabling/uninstalling all possible protection software. Does this in safe mode with networking as well. Also, not a temporary file or registry issue as i've cleared and cleaned both of those multiple times with different programs. Also the computer is completely up to date with microsoft. It doesn't seem like it could be a hardware issue because ive tried tons of things and nothing seems to crash the computer except for myspace in my experience. And it completely freezes up the whole computer, not just the application or a simple crash. The whole computer freezes and i can't do anything until i do a hard restart.
Any thought, ideas, or where I should go next?
