This is what happens :

How the problem started
I had my computer on sleep mode, after an hour, I came back and switch it on.
After entering password on profile, it freezes.
I switched it off by holding the power button.

I started getting freezes after trying to login or clicking the profile.

I managed to get into safe mode, I performed avg command line scan as well as sfc /scannow.
Both did not help, I then tried system restore.(did not help either)

I perfomed clean boot up, with no startup program. I managed to get it working past login, However the computer will freeze after a min of login.

These are the red warning in the event viewer :

1.The previous system shutdown at 3:46:23 PM on 16/6/2012 was unexpected.

2.DCOM got error "1084" attempting to start the service ShellHWDetection with arguments "" in order to run the server:

3.DCOM got error "1084" attempting to start the service EventSystem with arguments "" in order to run the server:

4.The Computer Browser service depends on the Server service which failed to start because of the following error:
The dependency service or group failed to start.

5.The following boot-start or system-start driver(s) failed to load:
I apologize for the long story, please help me!

Sounds like you might need a new hard drive there mate. Go get the AVG rescue disk and scan for errors. if there is any AVG will bring it up. please jot down any errors you get. best 'a luck to ya

You can also do this by going to the boot menu and selecting the bottom choice. I forgot what It's called. After that choose system test and symptom tree. scroll down to hard drive errors and do a scan with that. Also jot down errors and tests passed and failed. GL bro

Warnings are basically of no importance, IMO, in Event Viewer.

It's the errors that Windows uses as an alert that something needs attention.

Based on what you have submitted thus far...no one can tell what the problem is.

Can you boot into safe mode?

If possible...Publish a Snapshot using Speccy - http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic323892.html/page__p__1797792#entry1797792
