The problem is very frustrating: my computer keeps freezing. In other words, the mouse pointer is unable to move, I cannot use the keyboard, and therefore cannot use Ctl+ALt+Del to shut down processes. In order to fix the issue, I need to turn off the computer at the mains and sometimes I notice that the loadingup of windows is slow. At first I initially thought that the issue was spyware related and so to that effect, I reinstalled windows. No joy, the problem occurs even after a fresh installation of windows. There is NO pattern or warning signs associated with this particular problem, it really is random indeed and I must note that the length of time that it takes for my machine to freeze seems equally variable. I hope I have provided enough detail for someone to help, and to those that can help: a big big thank you in advance.
