Computer Freeze My computer freezes every time I am on it. I have had it repaired three times and have done system restores. The screen will freeze any time that I am using it. It will work fine for a certain period of time and then suddenly freeze up. I have removed any suspicious software off of the computer and the problem still remains

Firsly i would of asked what exactly the repairer did to it to solve the problem, and then ask for a refund as it is no better. But we can try and solve it here, by looking for the cause next time it freezes, go to control panel>administrative tools>event viewer, then look at 'application' on the left column and click on it and on the right a list of applications that have been run will list, look for any red 'x' and double click on that line and the problem will show and send yot to microsoft for a possible solution. look also on the 'system' again in the left panel and again look for red x's, but ignore any warning(!) marks. It may also be a graphics driver, so update you graphics driver or even try an older one from the card manufacturer web site. Another common freezing problem can be down to overheating, so take the side of the pc off and check there are no dust building on the fans and that there are no cables obstructing the air flow, leave the side off the pc whilst using and see if it still freezes. Also lastly, usb wireless network cards have been known to be a cause for freezing because of poor drivers, so if you have one try dissabling the software programme that runs your network card and enable WZC, which is Windows Zero Configuration, as this is more stable.

SysFreezer is a utility tool designed and developed to overcome system failure. With SysFreezer installed, whenever the system has a problem such as Format, Fdisk, deleting partition or repartitioning hard disk, you only press Reset button and the system will be instantly restored to the state before the problem occurred. In this case, you can avoid re-installing operating system and application programs as well as re-configuring the system. Thus plenty of time for maintenance can be saved.

Why does curser freeze with windows 7


Computer freezes is usually related to hardware, meaning the video card, random access memory (RAM), or another component may be underperforming. Software also can lead to a frozen computer, as can issues with drivers, the operating system, and malware; A virus or spyware infection on your computer might also be the source of freeze issues.all these things can stop a computer from working properly.
1.If the freeze happens every time a certain hardware device is plugged in or switched on, the device itself might be to blame. Check drivers update for the device, and download and install them to erase any bugs that might exist in your version. Similarly, if the freeze only happens when using one particular application, that program might also be the root cause.
2.Run the System Restore utility from the System Tools section of the Accessories folder on the Start menu to roll back Windows to a previous version of the registry. This will fix prior registry issues without affecting personal files and settings.

3.If your computer still keeps freezing up after you take the solutions above, I suggest you to download a software to deal with it. The choice is sure to be more effective and simple, but there are few free utilities for this issue. Windows Boot Genius is a excellent one if you wanna take this solution.

I have setting deep freeze


I was able to find this information on Wikipedia about the program deep freeze. I'm not 100% sure this is what you are referring to, but here you go.
Deep Freeze, by Faronics, is an application available for the Microsoft Windows,Mac OS X, and SUSE Linux operating systems which allows system administrators to protect the core operating system and configuration files on a workstation or server by restoring a computer back to its original configuration each time the computer restarts.

It keeps freezing and i have reset it several times and it just freezes


Your computer may be freezing because it probably doesn't have enough RAM, since it is a netbook. Try not to open too many programs at once, because that will make a computer with a low amount of RAM freeze. Hope that helps.
