This might be a hardware problem or device driver problem - or some other conflict. I am not sure however.. and can't fine a sollution - hoping someone here can help.
I have some sound stuttering, very minor, now and then. Also after coming out of sleep/hibernate, or right after reboot, mouse is "jerky" as if mouse turns on and off. This jerkyness goes away after 2-3 minutes of use.
Now what is new, and what started only last night is that
my computer freezes when downloading or watching youtube clips..
I suspected it was caused by utorrent. So i uninstalled that, and installed a torrent program called Tixati instead. But the freezing is continuing to occur. It's not just torrent downloading it freezes on - also normal downloading with browser. several diferent files with either firefox or IE causes windows to freeze (win 7 64b). (I tested it on trustworthy download site)
Both save as and run.
I've tried running "Slimdrive" and it did update some drivers from 2006.
I've ran housecall, it can't find anything.
I ran Spybot search and destroy (free), it did find somethings, I removed everything it found except cookies.
I've been in my networks adapter setting in device manager - I turned off task offloading to see if that helped, it didn't task offloading is on now.
I have a question : Would having programs installed that are not turned on - like Itunes or torrent program, just having it on the computer, could that cause windows 7 to freeze - just by itself. As in my case the newest thing i've installed before this happened was probably Itunes. And I've had a similar problem with Utorrent before (but only when it was on) it did not have a problem as far as i know, when it was "off"..
Also - I was updating java, and at some point I had both 64 and 32 bit installed at same time I believe - could this be causing windows 7 to freeze? when downloading? I am about to try now to uninstall java 32 - and reinstall java 64, to see if that fixes the problem.
Anyway - hopeing for help !
The Spybot found something new: "Somoto.BetterInstaller" - trying to "fix" with program.
