Q: cpu running at 100% and constantly freezing

My computer has been acting really crappy lately.
Really slow
I can get on the internet but the links take forever or the no response
cpu is running at 100%
We get a microsoft no response and have to reboot or if you control alt delete it says that there is nothing it is working on even though you have click on a program. Programs freeze constantly and take forever to get to another excel sheet as an example.
I have norton internet sercurity, I have done iolo system mechanics 6
we have run our adware
I have run pc pit stop on the computer which said it found trojans. Are all my problems caused by these and can you suggest a product to take them off.
If it is not a trojan that is slowing down the computer what other suggestion do you have for me. I really don't understand what is making the cpu run a 100%
Thank you for your time and help

Preferred Solution: cpu running at 100% and constantly freezing

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi my laptop is becoming a nightmare to use. It picks and chooses when it wants to work or constantly freeze. I'm finding that it is freezing a lot when I click on a new page and it says on the top bar 'not responding' then unfreezes maybe 60 seconds later. It just seems to be a lot slower now and i think its maybe because I have no idea about antiviruses etc and what the best software to gave is. I have MCafee and also the free version of Malwarebytes. I also have WinPatrol but only because it was recommended, I have no idea what it does or how to work it. I just want my laptop running fast again. Any help or advice is much appreciated. Here is all the desired information. I hope I have provided everything that is required. Thanks.

Hi all,

I think I followed everything correctly to get you the requested logs and am in great hopes you can help me.

A little background, as requested. First off, my computer could be considered a "dinosaur" in computer terminology, but I rarely do anything other than check email, browse the web and do the occasional work from home.

It has been running fine for years. Never really noticed any lags or extreme slowness, I'm assuming it's due to my not doing a lot of "space consuming" things.

The only thing I want to mention is that anything "Tor" related such as the "Tor Browser" or Bitcoins, they are to do with an anonymous browser that I have on my computer and have had installed for weeks with no issues at all. I need them when doing work at home to ensure anonymity.

I also constantly run and keep updated Microsoft Security Essentials, just FYI

Following are the logs requested:

Hey guys, I am running Vista on an AMD Phenom X4 9150e with 4gb ram. My hard drive is constantly running and chugging away pretty good too, reading rather than writing i believe. My cpu and memory usage are quite high and my system is running relatively slow for doing simple things like opening a browser.

For the past two months my laptop has been freezing inexplicably most often when browsing the internet, the weird part is that it'll freeze the first time but when i restart it it acts stable.I tried system restore, cleaning the registry, AV scans and spyware scans (With multiple programs), updated all drivers, defraged the hard drive

The only two things that u can think of is my Zone Alarm Firewall interfering with AVG (I heard this happens sometimes) or the numerous errors in the events viewer listed below:

I have a 1.60 GHz pentium with 256 MB of ram, running XP Pro 2002 Service Pack 2. I would say this system is 4 or 5 years old now.

I took my computer in for service the first part of June, had the hard drive wiped clean and a clean install of the XP Pro. Last week it just started going haywire. The screen would go black and it would freeze (mouse and keyboard--no Ctl-Alt-Del). I took it in to the shop last Thursday, and they removed an internet filtering program that I had downloaded. That helped quite a bit, but it still freezes on me. Sometimes I can work for 4 hours, sometimes 5 minutes before it freezes. I could not even work on it today, it froze constantly. I also replaced the mouse because the driver was old and the problem seemed possibly to be mouse related. That also did not help the problem--in fact, I think the old mouse worked better. I have run Scan Disk several times, Spybot, AVG, and CCleaner. No viruses detected. The whole system seems to be running slower than usual, too. I do notice some graphics involvement when it freezes--the mouse will be cut in half or there will be a little vertical line.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

My computer has been working completely fine up until yeterday morning when the entire screen froze, forcing me to restart and ever since then it just kept happening.
At first I thought it might be a virus so I formatted my entire PC and reinstalled Windoes but it didn't stop the problem.
The problem seems to be related to the task manager showing the disk usage spiking up to 100% and that's when the computer freezes. If I wait a few minutes the freezing stops and the computer starts working again, and that's when the Tast Manager shows the Disk usage going down.
I've tried a bunch of fixes online such as disabling Windows search and Superfetch, but it didn't fix the problem.
If anyone has an idea on how to solve it I would really appreciate it.

BIG UPDATE: My computer froze again, and after restarting I was taken to something that I don't know much about called UEFI, and no matter how many times I try to reboot, it won't boot normally.

OK I know MSN freezes on all computers every now and again but mine has been playing up a lot lately.

In the past it has frozen during conversations etc...But in the past few days it shuts down immediately upon opening it (each time).

It says 'Not Responding'.

I've tried closing it while frozen using Task Manager however this does not work - (I've left it 5mins+ to close - nothing happens!)

I've tried Shutting Down or Restarting the computer. Each time it takes about 1-2mins to respond and then it says 'Logging out' and then 'Shutting Down'.
However it stays on the 'Shutting Down' screen for ages. I've left it on one for 2hrs.

Each time I end up having to just manually shutting down the laptop by cutting the power...



Anyone know how to resolve this?

Hi,

My USB mouse keeps freezing every few seconds. Regardless of what I'm doing, it will freeze every 10-15 seconds for a period of time of anywhere from half a second or so to ~10 seconds. I've tried this in multiple USB ports and I've gone through all of the settings to disable the powering down of the USB, etc. I've replugged the mouse and restarted my PC more times than I care to count over the last two days. I've uninstalled and reinstalled drivers automatically and manually a silly amount of times. This has also happened with two mice in two days, except one of them now isn't even being recognised by Windows anymore. I tried to system restore, but the furthest back I could restore to was about two hours after the problem started occurring.

Any help would be great, as this is unbelievably frustrating.

Thanks.

Hi there,

I am hoping there is someone that can help me solve an issue I have been having with my computer. Over the last couple of months, the computer has been freezing. It all started with the BSOD but that has stopped and now the whole system is freezing. Sometimes it will freeze right when I log in, sometimes I can work on it for 10-15 minutes before it freezes and sometimes I can work for a couple of hours before it freezes. I end up having shut the computer off at the cpu and start all over. The only time it does not freeze is when I am running in safe mode. This is what I have done so far:

- Removed any programs I thought might be the problem, ie., Windows Live Movie Maker, Skype, Logitech webcam etc.
- Did a registry clean using Eusing Registry Cleaner
- Cleaned up any errors using Errorend

I am totally at a loss at what might be causing this problem and I'm hoping there is someone out there that can help me out. I have attached the Windows_NT6_BSOD_jcgriff2 file.

Thanks in advance!

Hello and welcome to the forum..

You have 56 minidump files and yes that's a lot I will start going through them in a couple of minutes. First you need to do 2 things.

1. Run a full updated scan using your anti-virus

2. Download malwarebytes and run a full scan here is the link and use the free version.

Malwarebytes : Free anti-malware, anti-virus and spyware removal download

Please give us the results of these two scans as soon as possible...

Please DO NOT use any registry cleaner they can them selfs cause a lot of problems within your system. Remove it from your system and as we go we will show you and tell you what you can use.

My dad has a computer with Windows XP on it which he runs his business off of and it is constantly freezing on him, let me get into more detail..

You will still be able to move the mouse around and you can maximize programs but once you do that you cant do anything more with them, and everything just eventually stops responding. The problem started out where the computer would freeze after being inactive for about 10 minutes, as long as he was at the computer doing something it would work fine but if he left it alone it would freeze.

Well we tried some things first to try and fix it, ran AVG but of course the computer froze during the scan. I tried to do a simple system restore, problem is the computer freezes during and it does not have time to finish it. So i went on to run a checkdisk (chkdsk /r) and had it run on startup, problem is the computer froze during the checkdisk aswell. After another day it starts freezing even when he is using it, first after about 10 minutes and now its down to 5 minutes tops. So since he has his older HDD in the computer still that he uses as extra disc space now I went ahead and booted off of that, its really bogged down like it was before he got his new computer but atleast it works. That one has a recovery console built into it so i booted off of that and ran chkdsk /r on his C drive (which ofcourse is the one we are trying to get fixed). Some problems found and repaired, great! Booted off of the drive it still freezes.

Hello,

I have had mu computer since November last year. Its a top of the range machine.

Windows 7 keeps freezing on me, and I have to force shutdown by pressing & holding the off button, as ctrl+alt+delete doesn't work (and nothing else does, either!).

There is nothing noteworthy in the application logs. There is no correlation between what I am doing on the machine and when the freezing occurs - it's totally random.

My boyfriend bought a computer at the same time as me (different brand) - and he is having the same exact problem. He is a computer tech guy, so he rebuilt his machine from scratch, but it is still happening regularly.

My machine cost a lot of money, and I'm scared it is going to get damaged because this keeps happening.

Please help!
Thanks

A:Windows 7 Freezing constantly...

You will need to provide more information about the specifications of the computer. Has it been freezing since you got it? If not, do you remember the last software or hardware change that was done? The problem could be simple, but in order to solve it, we'll need more information. Please update your system specifications (make, model, hard drive size, RAM amount etc) so that help may be had. Don't worry about the 'freezing' breaking something.
Something is already broken or at least not set up correctly. There are tons of people here who have answers to any question.

Hi,

I'm not entirely sure I've posted this in the correct section of the forum but I'm not really sure what the problem is, so apologies if this is in the wrong place. I have a HP Pavilion g series laptop, I got it in February of this year and it has been running brilliantly until a week or two ago. It has started freezing just after startup, the mouse still moves but if I click anything I just get a spinning blue circle and Ctrl + Alt + Del does absolutely nothing. I got told to try Ctrl + Shift + Esc instead but that doesn't work either. The computer runs fine in Safe Mode with absolutely no issues, and if I manually restart, boot in Safe Mode and then restart into normal mode sometimes it will come on and work normally.

I have looked at several forums already and following suggestions to others I've tried clean booting, which didn't help, and disabled the Computer Browsing - which seemed to fix the problem for a day. I can't System Restore because my laptop has no restore points saved which seems bizarre especially as I'm sure a couple of times I have specifically told it to save a point.

I checked the Event Logs (again following suggestions on other forums) and it seems that the system crashed on the 24th of May there is an error stating:
The previous system shutdown at 19:40:45 on &#8206;24/&#8206;06/&#8206;2012 was unexpected.

i've had my laptop for a year now and i've never had ANY problems with it whatsoever. well, i took my husband's external hard drive b/c mine is falling apart and i was freaking out i'd lose everything on it, so put it all on his for extra backup. well, that was DAYS ago, maybe 4-5. i'm not sure this has anything to do with it, but i wanted to mention that's the only new thing i've done, besides the usual.

at school on thursday, i brought the external in so my classmate could put a program (visual studio 2008) on it for me. his microsoft security essentials went off with about 4 worms/trojans. he said he cleaned it off, but now ever since then, my laptop keeps freezing! it doesn't matter what i do or load up, it'll freeze within 2 minutes.

essentials said it successfully deleted the worms, so i'm not sure that's it. it's just weird that after he hooked up the external to his laptop, it caused MINE to freeze, even though i don't have it hooked up to my laptop. i hooked it up when i got home from school and then took it off b/c it started freezing. while i was sitting there, though, he wanted to make sure none of it got onto his (he has windows 7), he ran his antivirus through and nothing came up, so he said he didn't get any of it.

Built what I thought was a dream rig but it's a nightmare and freezes at any point from welcome screen to an hour in but it will freeze at some point any time I start it. Thought it was bad RAM or I5 RAM in an AMD build (given by mistake) but apparently not according to tech people, Corsair themselves and Memtest. The HDD is a Seagate Barracuda but a chkdsk on it was fine. Temp is fine (30's) and system in 40's. AMD 1090T, Gigabyte GA-790XTA--UD4 motherboard, OCZ PSU (700W), GEForce 9800GTX, Corsair XMS3 CMX4GX3M2A1600C9 DDR3 Core I5 (Corsair said the only difference is an AMD runs it at 1333) and an Noctua Heatsink which I only mention because it now blocks the RAM .Hoping it's the video Card or PSU as all the other wiring is hidden out of sight under the MB and elsewhere.

Things will be fine for a few seconds or minutes, but then Windows freezes. It'll freeze for a few seconds, sometimes ten to fifteen, and then it'll go back to normal. It doesn't matter what I am doing; the problem happens regardless. I can't save anything to disk to back up for a re-install of Windows or anything because the freezing screws up the saving. In addition, I cannot reboot or shut down the computer manually; the process hangs at the "Windows is shutting down" phase, and doesn't move along, no matter how long I wait. What can be causing this and, more importantly, what can fix this?

My computer's problem is that all the programs and everything that's running suddenly freezes (programs, mouse, music, etc.) from time to time. Especially when I'm watching videos, usually on fullscreen, or on particular websites such as Twitter or those that take a while to load, are sluggish when scrolling through or have a lot of content. After it freezes, I would have no choice but to restart the computer. I tried formatting my computer, and installing the system on a new hard drive with plenty of space. I also cleaned out the dust from the CPU to make sure it's not over-heating, used a few programs and cleaned out the registry, deleted unused files and programs but nothing seems to work, the computer still freezes pretty often. After I formatted the computer, it started freezing less often and the blue screen where Disk Checking occurs stopped appearing whenever I had to restart my computer. Which means it helped a little bit to format the computer, but did not solve my problem. Hope you can help!

For a few weeks, my computer has been freezing a lot. I reinstalled drivers updated windows and software, tried everything, but is won't stop. No information related to the freezing is left in the event viewer, so I think it is a hardware problem.. My computer is less than 2 years old so a worn out hard drive is pretty much out of the question. The freezing usually, but not always occurs when the computer is working hard (serveral apps open at once, video editing, etc) and seems to occur more often when the computer has been on for a long time. The freezes usually happen every few minutes and it is driving me CRAZY! I want to pick up my computer and throw it at a brick wall because I can't get anything done! HELP! PLEASE! What is going on?!

Been having problems with my keyboard freezing, at first I found that taking the battery out, holding esc for 30 seconds then setting the bios to saved defaults worked as a temporary fix, but as time has went on it has gotten worse, every time I manage to get the keyboard working again as soon as I play anything with sound ie YouTube or iTunes it freezes again and won't work until I do the bios reset, but if I don't play anything with sound it works fine.


Another method I tried was taking the battery out holding the power button for 30 seconds then the windows key and the letter b and resetting the bios to factory settings but even this has not worked. I'm totally stumped as to why this keeps happening as it is so out of the blue, I've also tried reinstalling the keyboard drivers but this did not work either. Would appreciate any help.

A:Computer constantly freezing

Hi Shadowraider and welcome to TSF

Sorry for the delay in getting to you, the forum has been really busy lately and all our helpers are volunteers

There is no set average for running processes as these will depend on the PC and the applications installed. They will constantly increase/decrease while the computer is running, as programs (including background processes) are opened/closed. e.g. I have 42 processes running with an open browser and notepad opened. The rest are system processes, anti-virus program, firewall, anti-spyware and a few programs I chose to run at startup. Some users will tweak the startups to get down to about 25 processes but that's usually not needed unless your computer is really slow to boot up or slow at opening programs or responding to user input.

I don't see any malware in your log but I will take a further look to make sure, however..........

I notice that you have more than one anti-virus programs on your machine (AVG & Symantec). That's not a good idea!!

This messes up the machine pretty badly. Alike firewalls, anti-virus programs have conflicts co-existing with each other & may produce undesirable results. Please uninstall ALL leaving only one of them.

ALL the antivirus programs must be removed via add/remove program.
For any program that doesn't have an add/remove entry, you will have to do this:re-install the program -> reboot -> uninstall## Do NOT proceed with the rest of the fix until you have resolved t... Read more

and sometimes when I force it to restart from freezing up
It is completely fine when Im doing my tasks or even playing high-end games on ultra graphic settings(although the temperature of the laptop gets really high..)

And sometimes when I force it to re-start it will go into a 32 bit system mode(some kinda fail-safe system?)

I have tried to create a system repair disc to solve the problem but it did nothing...

Hi,

I have this laptop I sto- I mean borrowed from my brother and I have been having constant bother from it.

It began with the problems of two broken keys (G and H) and a problem with connecting to the internet...

So I sent it off.

When it came back from a computer repair company called "Tech Guys" (This is in England, by the buy) and it made things worse. It then started freezing on occasions and the date and time settings were broken.

I sent it off again,

They replaced the motherboard because it was corrupted but then freezing became the terrible condition and I sent it off, again and again. But they didn't fix it. They didn't send me a new one either. Luckily we get unlimited fixes because we pay.

I want to fix it, could you guys kindly look into it?

Hi,

Seems to me that you have you video drivers missing or something.

rundll- error loading nview.dll- a dynamic link library initialization routine failed




Are you running multiple monitors? Anyway, try Start=>Run=>msconfig
Then go to the startup tab and search for a line called rundll32.exe nview.dll,nViewLoadHook or something similar. The Startup Item should be nview. Uncheck it.


Quote:




VIAAGP1.SYS' ON VIA AGP FILTER DRIVER DISK IS NEEDED. TYPE THE PATH WHERE THE FILE IS LOCATED THEN CLICK OK




This one should be related to your drivers. Can you find out the name of your graphic card? Drivers page This is the page to download drivers for the graphics. Check if you see anything familar.

Good Day,

For about the past two weeks, i have been encountering some problems with my PC which include ...

- PC freezing during use (which requires a restart because not even CTRL+ALT+DELETE works)

- About every other day while booting up a message stating "Reboot and Select Proper Boot Device or Insert Boot Media in selected Boot device."

- And finally the BSOD about three times during the past two weeks

I'm not sure of the cause, but i thought i'd start by considering it a virus/malware/spyware issue ....

I downloaded dds.scr and tried running it but i get a message stating "This tool does not support your operating system" ....

I run Windows Vista Ultimate, 64-bit, Service Pack 1

Thank You for any help ....

I hope this is in the right place.

I am constantly having to quit firefox and restart it because it keeps freezing up. I have spent a fortune on antispyware and still no resolution. A friend recommended Hijackthis and I did it, have a log and don't know where to start.

If I post my log, can someone help me out here. I'm in waaayyyy over my head.

Thanks

Hello. I am having a very difficult time using my laptop. Dell Inspiron 6400.
About 1 mos ago my computer started to freeze up whenever I opened Mozilla, or up to the tool bar to change any options. The freezing would last about 30 seconds, after which things ran normal

I deleted Mozilla and started to use explorer, the problem surfaced there as well. I finally did a "dell restore" that solved the problem for a few days, but then the problems started again.

I have run memory check and the full dell diagnostics and everything comes up okay.

Now every time I open explorer up, my computer freezes for aprox 30 seconds. Also when the computer first loads up, it also freezes for aprox 30 seconds.

I did spybot, adaware, ccleaner and the trendmicro virus scan.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!!


thanks,


Ased
