Over the past couple days my computer has went from freezing here and there to constantly, the only consistent freezes it does is when downloading/updating literally anything. If I restart the pc enough times I sometimes get the download off. It has now gotten so bad I can’t update league of legends even though it should take 5 seconds, this problem isn’t only for that game but literally any game with an update, went to reinstall the game and then I froze just installing the league installer. It also freezes just trying to sign in sometimes or just after start up when nothing is running

When I do freeze it’s not a total freeze, I’m still able to move the mouse around, hear people if I’m a discord call/watching a YouTube video but I can’t open the task manager with ctrl alt delete, I can’t close out any open tasks or open anything new, basically stuck there with the windows I have open and freeze that program if I try to close it. 

I have tried reverting to the old graphics driver because the new one is only a day old and that didn’t work, I tried defraging my hard drives and checking for corruption/fragmentation, nothing besides 1% on one of my hard drives, I’ve tried opening windows in safe mode with networking and freeze there too, I tried safe mode with command prompt and running sfc /scannow and it found nothing. My computer idles at 29-30c so it’s not temp.


under event viewer and under system with critical and error the only ones selected I have a bunch of distributedCOM errors which i heard are harmless, some kernal-power critical errors, event log errors which i think are just from me holding down the power button to shut down the comp when it freezes, and every now and then volmgr errors. About the kernal power error i know every single driver on my computer is up to date because I checked that already.

under application errors I have a whole bunch of bonjour service errors

Not sure what to do as the computer is basically unusuable right now

Does it still freeze in Safe mode? Have you tried Windows Clean Boot to see if the problem continues. If it still freezes when testing these methods then I recommend testing as follows.


Stress Test Your CPU - Prime 95


Select the Blended Test

Record maximum temperatures and duration of testing.

Best to test > 3 hrs and abort testing as needed for freezing, temperature changes, etc
