I was in a different forum and suggestion was for me to go to Windows system and run scannow and also do a CBS log.  I ran it and don't know if it is ok, if something else needs to be looked at, or what it is for.  I don't know if my issue with computer hanging up is stopped or not.  Just mainly wondering if I got good suggestion and how can I tell if my computer is not infected with something, other than the virus scan came out clean.  Thank you.  I am on an HP, running Windows 10  Home, Version 1703, Build 15063.332. AMD with Radeon Graphics R5 and 64 bit.  I was tempted to attach the CBS log file, but did not know if that was acceptable, and certainly did not know if it would be a wise move to make.

The CBS log is used to help fix Windows problems.
I'm not real familiar with them, but find that the Windows Updates helpers use them a lot to make repairs on a system.

Here's a link with a brief description (it's for Vista, but it's similar for later versions of Windows):  http://blog.tiensivu.com/aaron/archives/1562-What-is-CBS.LOG-The-Component-Based-Servicing-log-for-Vista..html


My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.
