You've had Chrome problems for months.

You may be onto something

Those specific problems actually stopped happening, but I did just update flash. I'll try your suggestion.

No good

No BSOD but it keeps freezing for no apparent reason. I uninstalled OnLive, maybe that will help.

When I use a mouse, before it freezes, it says something about it not being able to read the USB device, sometimes saying I could switch to a faster 2.0 type or something and then freezes.

This machine has troubled you for some time now.

My advice is simple. Get out the canned air and clean the vents.

As to Live, some machines don't play well with that. Advice 2 is uninstall any app you don't use.

Before these 2, it took me like a month to replace the fan.

I've had prolonged car troubles too (currently getting around 9mpg when it's supposed to be 25, also black transmission fluid). Problems with stuff is part of life, I just refuse to spend l large money to deal with them. Hell, this started happening a couple hours before I got a replacement for the power cord that stopped working correctly.

Uninstalling Live didn't work, I'll try your cleaning idea next time I have the tools. Thanks again.

I wonder if I missed the earlier 1s

This explains a lot of the troubles.

In reply to: hmm

If there are any pests, any thought it will work proper must be dismissed.

Given the symptoms, my thought is to try one more scan. No install required either.

Google up Hitman Pro (the free one.)

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
