I'm finally swallowing my pride and admitting I am stumped.


Two years ago I built a computer with the following spec:


AsRock 770i Cafe Mobo


AMD FX-8150 Zambezi 8-core @ 3.6 GHz


G.Skill Ripjaws X Series 16GB (4 x 4) PC3 DDR3 SDRAM 1600 (PC3 12800)


OCZ Agility 4  2.5" SATA III SSD 512 GB


Samsung 830 Series 2.5" SATA III SSD 256 GB (OS Drive, and upgrade from former OCZ Agility 3 60GB SATA III SSD)


Mobo Sound chip




Computer usually also has a LaCie Minimus USB 3 (2.0 compatible) 2 TB ext HDD attached for work overflow. 


I am a full YouTube Partner with an MCN connected channel. For the last 18 months, I've only been able to render audio and video with lots of difficulty. Windows Movie Maker freezes the whole computer solid if any attempt is made to render a video which is more than 5 mins running time.  All other video editors work about the same (computer freezes), with the exception of Magix Video Pro X5, which will render a video of up to two hours as long as there is no soundtrack included.  What I have to do is render the video body, then mate the soundtrack to it using Adobe Soundbooth.  If I attempt a video render of longer than 2.5 hours using Magix, and go to bed leaving it running, I wake up to find the computer has rebooted, most likely after a BSOD, and is awaiting a fresh login.


In addition, any attempt to visit a web site which has major Flash components does the same thing.  Computer freezes solid, USB functions go dead, and the only thing left to do is hit the power switch and turn it off.  I am at the end of my patience and am considering putting the beastie in the shop unless someone at Bleeping Computer can offer a solution; the problem is starting to interfere with my contractual obligation to my network.

I already know about that scam my new friend, and have never accepted one of those as they are always from fake sites.  As a matter of fact since I use Google Chrome as my main web browser, and it has a custom Flash module called "Pepperflash", I've uninstalled Adobe's player entirely and that has done nothing towards relief of the problem. Neither RKill nor ADWCleaner have found any of the mentioned files from that site, either; this is something else entirely as I have run both utilities multiple times in the last 18 months without the problem being cleared.
