Does anyone here ever encounter a situation where only your internet browser is responding and everything including taskbar is not responding? Even after clicking task manager, the task manager will appears but is not responding. I have no idea what caused this but I just ran an online virus scan with Housecall and they remove 4 to 5 viruses after performing a full scan. I'm not sure what is wrong, any hints?

The hang period will last for about 6-7 minutes before they come back responding. Try checking with administrator logs but shows nothing. :thumbsup:

I'm no antivirus expert by no means but there is a few things you could do. Keep a active antivirus and firewall at all times, updated and run a complete scan with the antivirus. If you can download Super Anti Spyware and Malwarebytes Anti Malware free versions. Update them and run complete scans. SAS and SMA free are on demand only. You must update them and run them, they don't do anything until you tell them to. Please get back and let us know how things are going. Please let us know some things about your system. When this problem started, have you downloaded anything new when this started. Have you kept Windows updates up to date. Things like that, they might help.

Moving from Windows 7 to a more appropriate forum.
