Hi, if the title didn't already suggest this, my computer has been studdering. By "studdering", I mean it has been freezing and unfreezing rapidly during times of high CPU usage. (Or so I believe) The problem recently started occurring about 4 days after hurricane Sandy hit and we lost power -during which we used a very unreliable generator which had my computer being forced to shut off many times. When the problem just started happening I had tried doing a memory diagnostic, which said I had a memory problem, which I assumed was my ram. I have recently replaced my ram, (today actually) yet the problem still persists. I have done a hard drive diagnostic, which did not detect any problems. I have also de-fragmented my HD. (before the addition of the new ram) I have analyzed the HD with my new ram (not sure if it matters or not) and it shows 0% fragmentation. I put this topic in internal hardware because when the studdering occurs, I don't hear my HD spin. Although for a very brief period of time, it is very noticeable. I am also currently running a malware scan, using MalwareBytes which I will post the results of later. Below are my system specifications and attached is a longer document of my system specifications. This problem has been really bothering me and I am confused as to what the solution may be.

If a loss of power has caused forced shut downs it could have caused damage to files which were running at the time. Try running sfc /scannow.


Open an elevated command prompt. To do this, click Start, click All Programs, click Accessories, right-click Command Prompt, and then click Run as administrator. If you are prompted for an administrator password or for a confirmation, type the password, or click Allow.

Type the following command, and then press ENTER: sfc /scannow

The sfc /scannow command scans all protected system files and replaces incorrect versions with correct Microsoft versions.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
