I keep having problems with programs such as Firefox, Blender, etc. freezing up. The mouse will still move, but I cannot go to the desktop, nothing happens when ctrl+alt+del, ctrl+alt+exc, ctrl+shift+esc or alt+f4 are pressed. Eventually, after several minutes, either the task manager will come up, or the screen will just go black and I have to hard-reset.
This happened today at about 3:55pm. Had to hard reset at 4pm. I went to the device manager and this is what I see:
Running windows update right now.
I regularly update my Nvidia drivers.
Firefox updates itself.
Have run scans with Avast and MBAM and nothing turns up.
