Been going on for months. Went 7 to 10 in July with little trouble. Totally legit upgrade. 1607 update in November turned machine into a brick. After much hassle, finally got it to go, halfway decently end of December. Every day I get complete hangs. No input, no reboot. Sometimes reboot is good, sometimes 3 to 5 are needed, and all may be well for hours, or rest of day. Totally unpredictable. Some days fine. Did reinstall from 1607 disk, did scannow's. No help.

System not stressed. I'm not a gamer. Lots of browsing. Panda free antivirus. Malwarebytes and Superantispyware running real time.
Recently tried "Who Crashed" software, which consistently comes up with two items on these hangs. They are:
Nothing else on Who crashed.
I'd be grateful for any clues, and would, if I could, fax a 6 pak to my benefactor. Len
