Have you checked if there isn't any process using a lot of CPU?
Check if you find something in your log events, maybe your harddrive is failing...
Goto Start => Right click on "Computer" => click "Manage" => then open "Event Viewer"
Click "Windows logs" and "System" look for recent error's if you find some post them and we'll have a look
Hello. I'm using a Gateway LX6810-01 with Vista Home Premimum (64bit). I have 6gbs of ram.
So, basically. I usually fix my families computer because well, they have no idea what they're doing. And I do for the most part.
But anyways. I've been grounded. And I get on to find that it's freezing up every 15 seconds.
I first tried to defrag thinking that it might speed up the computer enough so I can actually fix it. But, it wouldn't even load up. I then restarted, and booted in safemode. I ran Malwarebytes, quick scan. And it still freezes up. I tried to defrag again, while in safemode and it froze up.
I did a scan with our antivirus Sophos. (I hate it.) It didn't pick up much. I then ran MalwareBytes 2 more times. Full scan.
It is still freezing up.
I was going to system restore. But then I found out all of my system restore points are now gone. I have no idea why.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
