  1. Hi there, i have recently started getting a problem where my computer freezes up, i can still move the mouse but the machine doesn't respond. The only way i can get it out of this state is by taking out the network cable. Would this be due to spyware? Thanks in advance

    Without the network cable plugged in, see if you can get into the control panel, system, device manager. Tell us if you see any yellow exclamation marks in the device list
