Last few days I've been having a serious problem with my Windows 7 computer. Every time I turn my computer on, my computer invariably freezes within ten minutes. If I open a program (any program - so I can't run virus scans, chkdsk, or system restore), the freeze occurs almost immediately. Everything stops - I can't even move the mouse, and I need to do a hard boot.

I downloaded and installed three programs only hours before the program appeared - Blender, Reaper, and LoL. However, those are all fairly legitimate programs, and I had them a year or two ago without issue. I deleted Reaper and Blender as soon as the freezes started. What's more, the freeze occurs even if I don't log into any account and just leave my computer on the startup screen.

The worst part is that the freezes occur even if I use safe mode. Maybe it's a hardware issue? My computer runs burning hot...

Any ideas? I'm decent enough with computers but I can't even run any of the programs that I think might help.

Thanks everyone! Sorry if this is in the wrong section.

It doesn't look good if the temperatures are running hot and t feels burning hot. I suspect hardware.


I hope you can run this tools:


:step1: Publish a snapshot with Speccy:



:step2:  Running TDSSKiller to obtain log


Note: Don't cure or delete a threat, but choose skip for all instead.

  • Please download TDSSKiller from here and save it to your Desktop
  • Doubleclick on TDSSKiller.exe to run the application, then click on Change parameters


  • In the Additional options: Check Detect TDLFS file system
  • Click Start Scan and allow the scan process to run


  • Choose for all threats to Skip for all of them.
  • Click Continue
  • Please post the TDSSKiller.[Version]_[Date]_[Time]_log.txt found in your root directory (typically c:\)
