First get hold of a bootable CD with something like Ubuntu or UBCD, boot from it, and save any data you don't want to lose to an external hard drive or flash drive. You didn't say what version of Windows you have, so I'll assume Windows 7 or 8. Boot from a repair disc and do a repair to see if that helps. If not, it's time to restore to factory settings. If you didn't create the restore discs as instructed in your user guide, contact Sony and see if they'll send them to you for a small fee.
Firstly sorry if this is in the wrong section of the forum, 1st post here although I have used others threads for advice before.
I have a Sony Vaio VPCYB3V1E laptop and recently it has been an absolute nightmare. Infrequent random freezes on almost every single application, leaving me unable to use the internet for more than 10/15 minutes max.
I have cleaned adware with superantispyware and tried to clean the registry with ccleaner but that freezes part way through the scan.
In the end i decided it might be best to just format the hard drive but have been unable to do so as the system backup also freezes up before it finished and I don't want to lose everything if I can help it!
I've done a HiJack This log but the file won't save in notepad even so my only option is to post it as screen caps which I'll do now below this post.
Any help with this would be massively appreciated as I'm losing my rag with it more and more every day, currently considering throwing it out of the window!
Thanks in advance!
