Hi there, I have a Toshiba Laptop running on Windows 7. For the past week or so every time i turn on the laptop the entire computer seizes up and i can't do anything on it at all. At first it only did this after being on for an hour or two but since a windows automatic update it has become much worse and only lasts from 10 to 30 minutes. I have tried restoring to a previous date, CCleaner and Defraggler but as of yet it has not helped. The only time i get any use out of it is when it is on safe mode but it is not practical as i can't use many of the features i need to be able to do my work. Any suggestions are appreciated.

don't know how old the laptop is ,but if its getting old, have you had it cleaned of dust buildup since it was new ,this could be a heat issue ,clean the fan and fins with a can of compressed air can be  a quick fix ,but removing back cover and getting at the inners of the fan will be required for a full cleaning

My answers are my opinion only,usually
