Look in the Event Viewer and see what errors are showing up at the time that this is happening. Each error will have its own date and time shown.

Start> right click on My Computer> Manage> Event Viewer.

On the right side of the page you will see the options Applications, Security, and Systems, double click on Systems. There are eight columns on this page, the three that you will want are Type, Date, Time, and Event.

The errors will appear in the Type column, they are red dots with a white X inside of them.

Warnings will appear as a yellow trinangle with an exclamation mark inside.

When you see an error, double click on it and see what the description is.

Please post the error code/s found in the Event column and the descriptions back in this topic.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

Thanks DC3 for the instructions.I have a lot of Red Errors and all seem to relate to 2 things.
I did run chkdsk /r and it said files are clean. Here are the 2 that are prominent. Thanks.
Hope it is clear enough to read.

EDIT. I also get this message many times.Could you explain to a novice what the below text means? Thanks.

The IP address lease xxxxxx for the Network Card with network address xxxxxxxx has been denied by the DHCP server xxxxxx (The DHCP Server sent a DHCPNACK message).

Seems like you have a Problem with Msn Messenger Alive, Mate.

Something else there about a Firewall too?

Take a look in the Device Manager and see if there are any errors (a red X) or warnings ( yellow triangle with exclamation point). If there are, double click on the item, look in the Device status and see if it is enabled, if it isn't, enable it. If it is enabled click on the Driver tab and uninstall the driver. Reboot, this should make the installation wizard look for the proper driver/s and install them.

Thanks for your input Abacus7 and DC3.
I went back to Windows Firewall until this is sorted.
Device Manager is clean.
Checked again and getting a warning about Threat Fire failing to load.I haven't got Threat Fire Program any more.
What do I have to do to stop this warning,about Threat Fire trying to start?
The below error is showing at time of freezing,also.
Thanks.

"The ThreatFire service failed to start due to the following error:
The system cannot find the file specified".

There's probably a registry/file startup entry that triggers that...you can use AutoRuns for Windows - http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinte...s/bb963902.aspx to find and either disable or eliminate it. Try looking at the Logon tab only.

Often, when programs are removed, these types of orphans may be left behind (orphans because the parent program has been removed).
