It doesn't seem to be too bad, but I have a bad feeling about the way my computer is booting. As if something else is starting up with my regular programs. Just had a strange issue with my whole computer freezing right after start up, rebooted twice and it's better, but I don't like having bad feelings. Please help? I'm really unsure of whats wrong

Hello Reinbao I have some advices for you, need few basic cleaning tools like Dr Web cleaning tool , or Kaspersky virus cleaning tool , run them both in Safe Mode .... run them both if you find bugs delete them and reboot your pc , your pc should work faster , install a better antivirus and firewall , use also a router with firewall to stop botnets and hackers , My sugestions are COMODO free firewall and ESET NOD 32 antivirus ... good luck  :warrior:
