    The Belarc Adviser (Nifty program by the way), has opened itself in Firefox without making a file anywhere (to the best of my limited knowledge). Should I just copy and paste the entire list of things there?

    You can save the page in some temporary folder, then edit it as i advised. Temps seems to be well within range.

    Edit:
    Will update once I see your Belarc log.

    I do not have anything called Dr Watson, When trying to edit the .xml it opened a LOT of HTML (I think) in notepad, should I just attach the file rather than remove the user names etc, seems a bit of a hassle.

    It also contains windows/other software keys along with names; open the file in firefox and see what is the heading of that section; then open the file in notepad, search that section by using Find; and erase contents of that section. Yes i remembered that from Vista onward MS discontinued it.

    I'll delete the very end >.> Just so you know, it's incomplete.

    Moo: Please take down your belarc.txt file (erase it from your post) by editing it; as it contains all license info.

    Right, using Ctrl F, what am I searching for and what am I meant to delete?

    Hehe don't we all make mistakes.

    Anyway, I have gone through it; man you have literally tons of software installed ;)

    1. To start with, I am unsure about value of having Mcaffee, I will advise you to get rid of it (along with all its components etc.), and replace it with Avira or Avast (free versions are very adequate for protection).

    2. I will advise you to have a look at the software list, and see which one you are not using, and uninstall them as well; only you can be the better judge of that. Belarc can help you there, see which software you haven't used in 90 or >90 days :)

    3. I have never been a fan of RAM Boosters or Cleaners, they can cause instability depending upon settings you choose.

    Lastly, having gone through so many avenues to fix this issue; I would also recommended to stress test your hard disk as well. I was able to find Hitachi's Drive Fitness Test Utility here, download its manual and cd bootable image, burn it and follow instructions according to manual.

    Also I have been trying to find a utility I remember for something like 2000 or around that time, probably named deep freeze (not sure though) which was supposed to record which software/modules etc. are causing such freezes, but haven't had luck so far.

    Ah, awesome, well, yeah, like I said, used to be a family computer. I wiped an aweful lot of the stuff off it too, it's getting rediculous. I must have deleted about 50gb so far. The second reccomendation I do fairly often anyway, but I'll do it now. uhh, RAM booster etc, yeah I've heard about the instability etc, but I've noticed a vast improvement in my frames per second when its on, and stops the masses of start-up programs pre-built in.

    You can check what is loading at the startup by:

    Clicking on Start, Run... and type msconfig;
