  1. This has been happening since last night, 8:00 P.M.
    My specs:
    Quad core AMD A8-3800
    8GB DDR3 RAM
    1TB HDD
    Genuine Win 7 Home Premium
    AMD Radeon HD 6550D

    Other things to know, I installed "Google Talk" and removed it, "Sony Vegas Pro 11.0" and still have it, deleted "Skype" because I THOUGHT it was the problem, and installed "ooVoo."

    I made a Win 7 64-bit repair CD on Friday...

    But back to the freezing, I can move the mouse, but everything, task bar, desktop gui, EVERYTHING goes not responding, Then several minutes later Win tells me explorer.exe is non responsive, I kill the process, no help but several minutes later explorer comes back alive, and everything is nice pretty and dandy. WTF, I did not buy a $1000 for this.

    I'm a advanced user, repaired computers B4, this is just weird...

    I'll do anything, Malware-bytes came up clear and so did my McAfee.

    I WILL ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS, JUST ASK!!

    "I'm a advanced user, repaired computers B4, this is just weird"...

    So why are you still using McAfee? Uninstall it, if you can, and install free Microsoft Security Essentials. Windows 7 does not like McAfee...

    Do you really think McAfee is the problem? No offense...

    You can always re-install McAfee if the problems still exist. After all you paid for it, didn't you?

    Be certain to install all the Windows 7 updates including the optional ones

    Instead I just completely reset to factory, problem solved.
