|My laptop keeps freezing. All windows stop working and have the "(not responding)" message. Even Cntl Alt Del will not work. In the end I just have to hold down the power button until it powers down.|
Freezing occurs when I look in the DOWNLOADS folder and also when I try to transfer some work files to a external hard drive (moving always stops at the same spot).
Other things work fine, the computer has plenty of spare memory and runs fairly swiftly.
I have downloaded and run spybot and deleted the various bits it found, run the disk cleanup and defrag.
Not sure if I have accidently downloaded some virus or what.
Anyone have any ideas? would appreciate any advice.
