I have a really difficult and weird problem with Windows 7, it keeps freezing randomly. I took an USB plugged it in that computer to backup my files, I plugged it in a different computer also running Windows 7, almost instantly the other computer running Windows had the exact same problem. My first thoughts were a virus that jumped onto an USB and infected Windows. I'm also running ubuntu, that goes just fine. I did a fresh install formatting my USB and my hard drive on both of the pc's and still the problem remains.
I study computer science and I have installed different operating systems numerous times but never encountered anything like this. It seems to be a virus, but how can it persist after formatting? It infected my other pc through my USB, but on the other hand it looks like hardware related issues?
