I see that there are already a number of posts regarding freeze ups on machines using Windows 7 as an operating system. I'm looking for some help for my son's machine which is experiencing exactly as the title says, Random Freezes.
The machine is an HP P6502UK. He has run the following without success.
Seatools both short and long tests - passed
Memtest86+ ran for 12 hours - no issues
Kaspersky recovery disc 10 - no issues
WD hard drive tools - passed
Malwarebytes - no malware
Clean software and hardware boot
Microsoft security essentials - initially nothing, on second scan trojan win32 giframe a, now removed
Page file is managed by the system.
I think we have got to the stage where we can't see the woods for the trees and a fresh mind would be helpful, even going back to square one if needs be.
Any help and hand holding would be appreciated.
Ah, it seems that this machine belongs to a fried of my son's and he thinks someone may have been messing with the registry!! Even more hand holding would be even more appreciated!!
