Got a problem with my new computer freezing - new computer as in bought a computer only used a little by my friends mom - scanned with malware and antivirus, cleaned it with cc-cleaner. Uninstalled Glary and Baidu that was on it - still kept freezing at first start-up .. always coold-boot then it worked fine for the rest of the day except...

 

Saw my AdBlockPlus didn't block anything ...every morning when I started my computer my computer blocked after just 2 min surfing - not even able to move my mouse curser or do ctrl alt del - to see the processes - got win 7 on it. Uninstalled my Torch browser, since I didn't find anywhere to uninstall the AdBlockPlus. Funny thing - the torch browser kept refering to itself as Google Chrome - is it a Google program now?

 

 Did a search and found a similar problem with no resolution since the persons dad died and up until now I downloades ADW cleaner ...I ran it but .. I am not sure to have solved the problem until I do another restart, I am currently running Avast thorough scan.

 

When I restart I will reinstall torch - and if this doesn't work - what should I do?

 

Thank you in advance

When acquiring a system from a previous owner/user...a clean install or restore-factory-defaults is the way to go.

Yep, well - that is one thing that I can figure out myself ... but the thing is - and I don't mean to be rude .. but I can not and have not the time to sit down and do that right now .. None of the things that I asked was responded to so far -and there is not a chance I can reinstall my laptop now. I need to know why my computer blocks - it is a HP Pavillion dv7. 64x double processors AMD Athlon II P320 and ....AMD 880G with ATI mobility Radeon HD 4250. I guess, no one knows then... 

All the best
