Hello everyone,

I have a Gateway desktop pc which freezes when I leave it idle, usually within 5-10 minutes it'll freeze.

My hijackthis report can be seen at ........., can anyone let me know what's wrong?

I've checked the cpu temp as well as ran spyware/antivirus to no avail.

Try checking your system drive first for any errors. Check mark both options. http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows7/Check-a-drive-for-errors
