Last weekend my desktop PC with Win7Pro decided to start locking up every now and again, and I could not get the start button get working so I could do a restart. I then had to do a hard reset and wait for the reboot of my system. Then I set about trying to find out why it was locking up. I managed to run my AV program, but not was shown up, so then it was the anti malware programs turn, but I couldn't get it to scan as my system locked up again. |So after another hard reset, I tried as I may to get the anti malware program run, which after a few tries it did, but nothing was found.
I suspected it was some kind of worm which was run from the registry each time I rebooted, but I could not dig any deeper without my system locking up again.
So the only thing I could do, was to re install the OS, and then all my programs.
If anyone has any ideas as to what it could be, it would very appreciated in case it happens again.
Normally, and for some quite long time Win7 Pro has been running without any problems and I regarded as being a solid system, until last weekend of course
