Hello so i have had this problem for a long time now.

the problem is this.
I am casually using the computer browsing Battle.net and mmo-champion.com and BOOOM firefox(or other browser i try) locks up. I try to open the task manager. no luck windows has hung itself.
the only way is to cut the power and boot up again.
I have tried reinstalling, different windows 7 versions (legal) and still no luck.
I have tried checking for hard drive errors. there are none.
I have defragged several times.

and i get this lockup at random Sometimes i get it once i boot in. and sometimes i don't get it for days.

I run ESET smart security 4.2 (latest)

and i recently bought a new hard disk since i thought that was the problem. but it just continued.

My computer specs is this (see attached DXdiag)
My hard disk got 419 GB free of 465 GB.


oh and my main activity is Playing WoW and browsing the web. (sometimes i do play something else but its quite rare) and also Programming (though i haven't installed Visual studio since the last format)

anywho to the point

anyone know why this is happening and is there something i can do to fix it?

it had several ones that said this

"The file system structure on the disk is corrupt and unusable. Please run the chkdsk utility on the volume C:."

So i ran the check disk and it did find corrupt files and such and repaired them.

after that the only Warnings i have gotten have been this.
"The driver \Driver\WUDFRd failed to load for the device Root\SIDESHOW\0001."

i will monitor it and see if i get more of the first error and/or other ones.

anything else i can do?

and coxchris thanks for the tip. updated them and they should now be of latest version :)

did a SFC /scannow
and
Beginning system scan. This process will take some time.

Beginning verification phase of system scan.
Verification 100% complete.
Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of th
em.
Details are included in the CBS.Log windir\Logs\CBS\CBS.log. For example
C:\Windows\Logs\CBS\CBS.log
the log is 9.92MB large. cannot attach it normally so i ziped it.

followed some microsoft support directives and got these files listed as corrupt and cannot be fixed automatically.
(see attached sfcdetails.txt file)
this is the support article i used
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929833
now i need some known good files of those.
if anyone here got them i would be happy if you can share them (Windows 7 Ultimate)

ok i used my windows DVD and replaced the corrupt files (did another SFC scan and now it cannot find any corrupt files)
But i saw this in the event viewer just now
"The device, \Device\Harddisk0\DR0, has a bad block." <- several of those
"Session "ReadyBoot" stopped due to the following error: 0xC0000188" <- one of those
I did a SeaGate Tools scan and the
Driver self test fails
all other tests pass
Anything else i can do?
PLEASE anything to help will be appreciated. I just bought this hard disk and don't want to to flunk out on me now

If it is a new drive and is showing a bad block I would return it for a new one.
