I'm having problem with my system now, it frequently hangs up, although i can move the mouse cursor but i cannot click anything like the "Start" button or even click some opened windows, and my HD led shows no signs of activity,so it's not reading. What i always did is to end the process of "explorer.exe" on the task manager, then re-run it and everything back to normal again. It's so annoying because i always have to those steps everytime my system hang ups. Can anyone help me?.

System manufacturer and model?

What SP is installed? Is Windows current with critical updates?

Any error messages onscreen?

Have you reviewed Event Viewer for possible clues?

How To Use Event Viewer - http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/40108/how-to-use-event-viewer/

Have you checked for possible overheating?

Try running the chkdsk /r command on your system. Start/Run...type chkdsk /r and hit Enter. Type Y in new screen and hit Enter. Reboot the system.

2- SP3 with latest Critical Updates
3- No Error Message
4- Haven't tried to view the Event Viewer
5- Overheating could be the possible cause.. Im going to install extra fan. I'll update you later, i'll just have to observe my system first.
6- Going to run the "chkdsk /r" now. I will update you later.
