sorry computerxpds for not getting back immediately. Thank you for your help. Before I do as you said, I want to let you know that I did an sfc/ scannow and a few other minor things, like chkdsk to see if those would resolve the issue. The system has been running fine for about 1 week now, so I figure I should give it a month before it can be determined whether or not it has been fixed. I will let you know.
However, as far as specs go, it is a Dell Studio XPS 17, intel i7, 4 DDR3, 500GB HDD, 512 Graphics, and yes it has a webcam. I am assuming that might be the issue with the usbvideo.sys. I removed the driver for it completely but when i restarted the system it automatically reinstalled.
