My ASUS laptop is about 2 yrs old, and over the past week or so has been freezing anywhere from 5-45 min after startup, every time, and i cant do anything but shut down. It freezes whether or not I'm doing anything, either at the moment or for the whole time its on. I thought it might be overheating, but it doesn't feel hotter than normal and after I took the back panel off and sprayed the dust off the problem didn't go away. When it freezes, the open program and the start button stop responding, but the mouse can usually still move. ctrl alt del doesn't usually work, and when it does none of the options work wont open. I've also tried running virus scans, but they always freeze at 70% and take the computer with them, so it could be a virus, but even if it is I'm not sure how I could remove it before my comp freezes. Right now I'm using expressgate, which has been working fine. Any help would be much appreciated and I expect would be rewarded with karmic bonuses of some sort. Thanks
