The origin of the problem: One night I was playing a computer game, not in a web browser, just on the computer, then I went to bed. I didn't turn off the computer, I just shut the top. About 5 minutes later, I heard the Windows start-up music. I thought to myself "What the...?" I opened the top and it said something like, "Windows had to restart due to an error." I click OK and proceeded. After about maybe a minute, it froze and I had to shut it off manually by holding down the power button. Now every time I turn it on and log on, after about a minute, it freezes. I can still move the cursor, but can't click or type anything.
If disabling everything in the StartUp tab of System Configuration doesn't fix the issue, I would like to disable all the items that I possibly can in the Services tab.
Here is a list of all the items that I have in the StartUp tab of System Configuration. If someone could direct me as to what I may disable and I can't, that would be great!
Alps Pointing-device Driver
IDT PC Audio
Dell Wireless WLAN Wireless Network Tray Applet
RAID Event Monitor
Catalyst Control Center
Dell Support Center Updates
AVG Internet Security
Adobe Reader and Acrobat Manager
Microsoft Windows Operating System
Windows Live Messenger
HP Digital Imaging
I can provide additional information about the above items, such as the item's manufacturer, and it's location.
Any help regarding how to fix my freezing issue is greatly appreciated!! Thank you in advance!
