For example Microsoft Outlook and VLC media player freeze
they can’t even be forced to close unless ending the whole process tree in taskmanager.
Also when installing new program the install freezes about 1/5 through most of the time
When copying something in windows explorer it freezes about 1/5 through, can’t be canceled either or it will go on forever without actually giving a sigh that its frozen.
like give option to wait or to close.
These freezes are not really the normal type, they can’t be stopped by task manager end task/process
only (sometimes) by end process tree or shuting down computer
Working on vista 32 ..
its not the whole opperating system that freezes, just certain programs/actions
Don’t think its virus or spyware because these things have run in normal and save mode and can't find anything
Malwarebytes, avg 2012 free, spyware terminater, spybot search and destroy, combofix, CCleaner can’t find anything
Other programs like firefox, word, other videoplayers, … do work like normal.
Nothing wrong with internet connection, browsers.
Also can’t see any processes in taskmanager that are using excessive memory, cpu, …
Don’t have a good restore point …
Don’t know if it’s a hardware or software problem
Any idee what I can do to find out the cause of these problems ? And fix this problem?
Thanks in advance
Ps: new to this forum, so sorry if this is places in the wrong section
