Hi, guys.
Now i have a notebook, or netbook, what ever.
And ever since the start of when i bought this thing, even when its just doing nothing on the desktop, or just running a simple Avira antivirus, or even a small 500 mb download, its freezes every now and then, last time, i was just reading some forum, and like a big f--- you in the face it froze on me! It maybe because my little brother downloaded a pirated version of San Andreas... But that has been removed as i dont believe in piratacy. Thanks in advance.

Download and run Malwarebytes, it often picks up on infections that your antivirus program may have missed. This may have come along with the pirated software or been another thing that was picked up. If this does not help, try a system restore to a date well before the original download and see if that helps (you will not lose any files, but you will lose any updates and installs since than).

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

uhm... I Already HAVE Malwarebites anti malware...
A system restore...hmmm... could give it a go.
But another thing: It seems to happen when its been used for a long time... im sure the heat of the thing is ok, so it isnt overheating.

Thanks anyway.
