Since last tuesday Windows Explorer, the menu and taskbar keep freezing/crashing. Sometimes it will fix itself when I wait for a while, most times I need to reset my laptop. I don't have the problem in safe mode. Last night my laptop failed to start in safe mode and did a disk check when starting up again. At the first three stages of the check it didn't say something was wrong, but at the end it did say something about moving disk space I believe. I wanted to take a pic of the screen but the screen was gone after a few seconds.
I did like ten different virus/malware/adware/whatever scans but nothing came up. So I don't think it's caused by an infection.
I've never had issues with my laptop till a few months ago. I'm not sure if those issues have anything to do with this, so I'll list them below:
- Around july windows update stopped working. Tried to fix it with some fix software by Microsoft. Didn't do much.
- Every now and then I get the message ControlDeck.exe is not responding.
- My laptop once got a blue screen while shutting down. Checked the error code, said it was caused by my drawing tablet. Suggested to use a fix or delete the drivers. Fix had some risks, so I decided to remove the drivers since I don't use my tablet often. Didn't figure out how to remove the drivers, never had the issue again, so kinda forgot about it.
I've a seven or eight year old Asus laptop (K52F) with Windows 7 Home Premium service pack 1 64bit. My harddrive got replaced after 2 years, so it's 5 or 6 years old.
