However, to ascertain what the underlying problem is, research and troubleshooting will need to be performed. As I've never had a problem like the one you're describing, you'll be better served by creating a separate thread for this specific issue, and I'd strongly recommend creating the same thread on both the TechNet and Microsoft Answers forums.
- If, while on the Microsoft Answers forum, an MVP posts what is clearly a reply that's been cut and pasted, ignore it and request that they respond with actual input to your thread or to simply move on.
- Also disregard any advice to reset or refresh your PC, as these three things are common posts from MVPs who are simply wasting users' time, more often than not suggesting things that either are completely erroneous and not helpful, or flat out wrong (such as refreshing/resetting a PC, of which should be the absolute last option and is never needed, as a repair install should be performed as the absolute last option).
I would recommend, if you can directly pinpoint around the time this began occurring, trying a system restore... this may or may not solve the issue, as it's not known what underlying issue is causing your experience. Until you're able to get troubleshooting help from someone knowledgeable enough to help you, I would disable BITS in services (WinKey +R, then services.msc). You will have to stop the service in order to disable it, however this shouldn't be done permanently - only until you're able to get help diagnosing the underlying issue.
Just discovered I got the same issue and registered here...
HP 2570p with Win7 was working fine. Updating to Win10 faced several errors on the way, so I immediately made a clean re-install. To work on a new system was impossible, it was getting freezed up in not more than some minutes, sometimes in less than a minute. What helped was BIOS upgrade - now it freezes once half an hour, which is already a big progress... :/
The freezing is not a typical one. It is not just hung up - rather partly paralized. Typically, the pointer starts to "think", and the window driving this thinking to start just stops working. The other windows keep on working entirely or partly. Task manager normally gets unusable and it is not possible to switch off the laptop or restart it other way than making a hard reset. Anyhow, nothing seems to be killing the cpu or memory, I can still browse files in other windows (although rather not execute them) or browse websites (although often without ability to open new tabs). If not restarted (hard reset) it gets worse within the passing time and after some minutes nothing really works, except for the pointer that is always able to move. Last "level" is a blak screen with a movable (not freezed) pointer...
I checked System Recovery partition if it got extended to 350MB - it is ok. I installed all the drivers from HP site and updated the system - no better. Updated the BIOS - this reduced significantly the freezes' frequency - anyhow, it still happens to often to normally use the system. It freezes on a clean install, on a clean with the drivers, on a clean with drivers and fully updated. And I tried at least 5 clean installs so far... :'(
Would it be that it just won't talk with HP? Laptop still has a warranty, but HP doesn't give a **** for Win10, as this model was not tested to work with one

too bad I cant just buy windows 7, cause I know A mother board 1151 doesn't support it fully... MS made sure it....

I wonder if companies like HP and Dell aren't releasing hardware for 10 or if MS is just completely not caring about driver testing anymore.
Due to numerous, and extremely legitimate, reasons, all new processors produced for RTM >2015 (beginning with SkyLake [6th gens]) will only be compatible with Windows 10; however, all processors that RTM <2015 (Broadwell [5th gen]), provided they meet the minimum specs, are compatible with Windows 10.
Majority of users have never built their own PC or server, so many don't realize a processor is more than just a CPU, offering a plethora of other features, from hardware encryption to more efficient networking, and a whole host of other features. To gain a more complete understanding, check out Intel's website and compare a 3rd or 4th gen CPU to a 6th gen, or different SoCs, such as the J1900 vs the C2750 or the C2750 vs the C2758.
For current PC owners, the detail to note is that Intel's current, sixth generation processors, known as Skylake, are the first that won't support either of the older versions of Windows. (Intel and Microsoft say that the platform and Windows 10 were designed for each other.) Microsoft is phasing in the policy now.
