Hello,

Thank you
When is the last time you defragmented your hard disk?

Have you recently cleaned your cache ?

Thank you
Defrag hard disk was probably a month ago, when it first started happening,

And cache not for a while probabaly.

Could I do both of those in safe mode without is freezing you think?

How do you clear cache again?

Sorry but I never had Windows 7, I don't know how to delete all of temporary files and cookies.

If you have defragmented your hard disk a month ago, it should not be necessary.

It could be a memory issue.

Delete all of your temporary files and cookies.

Check your ram sticks
