I got a Sony Vaio that likes to freeze up within roughly 10-15 minutes of using it, I've been able to install Malwarebytes and Avast, as the complainant thinks it's a virus because it started happening a week ago. Whenever I run Malwarebytes, or Avast, it locks up completely. I tried diagnostics on the hard drive, and it did't find anything other than I believe it was telling me I should do a defrag, Computer freezes during analyzing process of defrag. It would also freeze during "boot-time scan" from Avast. And 7 out of 10 times if it was running decent and I need to properly shut down or restart, it will freeze on shutting down splash screen. Windows is up to date. I found a forum stating to update the SATA drivers, did that and now it just runs sluggish and eventually creates a snowball effect to where I have no choice but to force shut down. It will do all these things in Safe Mode as well.
