  1. Hi folks. My PC has been running without any problems for a while now, but lately it has been acting up. It has been freezing at times. I cant seem to end any programs that are running in the task manager, even ones i could end before. Is it cool for me to post a log for someone to look at? because i know that logs can be a pain to decipher these days
