Windows 10: Windows 10 freezes randomly
Hello, sorry for my English, i'm Argentine and spanish is my languaje.
I read all the post because at my work we have at least 5 computers with hangs since de win10 upgrade from 8.1
In my pc i "solve" the hangs running the task manager, selecting "always visible" and moving to a border of desktop.
Not one hang with the task manager running....
Hopefully followed your suggestion. But had a freeze right now :-(
I upgraded my
ASUS P5Q PRO TURBO
8 GIGS of RAM
Corsair Foce GT SSD
750TI Video Card
to Windows 10 earlier this week and was getting freeze up (which seemed to only happen during a cold boot) with no BSOD requiring a reset. Finally figure out what was causing it - it was the "ENHANCED C-STATES" on the BIOS. If I have it enabled, problem happens, if I don't, - works just fine.
SPEEDSTEP and C1E is enabled though.
I just my first freeze today.
I was downloading Battlefield 4, and my wireless adapter stopped responding. I unplugged and plugged it back in, it was fine, until I plugged another wireless adapter into the USB 3.0 Port. It was an older zyxel G wireless adapter. After doing a hard reset, I was able to plug in the zyxel adapter, it worked, but caused my mouse to have weird pauses, froze up for about 10 seconds, and resumed.
My netgear WNA3100 doesn't work right as it screws up and loses connection to the Motherboard. Going to buy a new wireless adapter
Just jumped to share what has helped me (now they appear very rarely, once a few days ).
I did an upgrade of Win7 to Win10. Right after the upgrade I used to have micro freezes (<0.5 sec) a few time per hour, randomly. Especially noise buzzing was annoying when a movie or song on youtube playing. I tried a lot of combinations of different tweaks and fixes, but the one seems to have fixed the issue. At least for me.
I have an old Radeon HD 4350 vcard and I use an ancient ATI's driver. It's 10.4 with CCC. ATI's support of old vcards for Win10 is another story. So no ramblings here. Just want to point out that I blocked Windows to update ATI vcard driver to the latest one with "hide" new updates by "Windows Update MiniTool".
So I decided that it's time to try to install optional updates that Win10 didn't install for some reasons. I found out that a driver for "ATK for support of ATK0110 ACPI UTILITY" was dated 2010, but MS has a new one for 2012. After installation of the driver (it seems that it's somehow related to ASUS MoBos A.I., some power management features???) the issue appears rarely.

I updated this tutorial on May 7. Haven't had a freeze for 6 months and BSOD for two months. BSODs happen only if I install some incompatible software.
I have exactly the same issues with ndis.sys and tcpip.sys. When I shutdown utorrent 2.2.1, no freezes anymore <br>But when it's running I see them once per 2-5 minutes.<br><br>Did exactly the same with xperf and see delays by ndis.sys and tcpip,.sys drivers. Now need to get somewhere a new network card with a proper driver that's compatible with win10.<br><br>networking - NDIS.SYS driver very high latency in Windows 10 - Super User
Short Story: Installed W10 on a kinda old Laptop (MSI CX500). And guess what, had the same issue as alot of u guys here.
Like the most here, tested, tweaked, and what else my fingers wound - nothing would help. But for now, i might have found a Solution. It might not work for all u guys, but im sure, that it will help alot guys here.
This was the way how i was getting rid of the random freezes. As for now, my Laptop has almost 7 hours uptime with out any issue. (Try'd to force it by the apps where it would occour by 100%)
You don't say what hardware you have. There seems to be a problem with some Intel Skylake cpu:s. Most have problems under heavy load but My computer froze under very light condition. I've experienced two freezes in a month now. Only a hardware reset helped to reboot the machine.
I have a MSI with Intel i7 6700 Skylake cpu. Som have reported freezes also with Linux on these cpu:s. Apparently Intel knows about their cpu bug and are investigating it.
I have four computers with W10 and only the new MSI (with i7 6700 Skylake) has these problems. The other computers have been stable with no issues what so ever. All have different Intel cpu:s.
Edit: After many W10 updates my MSI system is now stable. No lockups or other major problems.

Interesting. I've got Asus z170-a pro-gaming with a 6600k, OS on SSD, backed up data on separate internal HDD.
Logitech G500 gaming mouse.
Since a few months ago I've been getting seemingly random freezes (not BSOD), but only while gaming.
It turned into BSODs after making some system adjustments, so completely deleted/formatted the drive a few days ago.
Haven't seen a BSOD since, but just a couple minutes ago (while using firefox with a few tabs open), downloading star citizen and having a very light UE4 project open, the pc just froze. I've got windows power management set to high performance jffs.
I noticed the light on the mouse and the keyboard were off, but all the case fans were spinning as normal and the monitor was on. Event viewer and reliability monitor didn't report any system failures, though UE4 did report an APPCRASH.
During the first three attempts at installing windows 10, the process has frozen at 32% total installation and 6% on the "drivers and features" section. The entire process freezes and no animations play. No errors, after reboot from the freeze it...
I am on an Alienware Aurora R3 with Windows 7 Ultimate x64. I ran the media creation tool to upgrade to Windows 7, and it gets as far as 100% copying data. It then restarts, the dots circle once, and then they freeze. I force a restart and it...
Does anyone have this problem? A friend of mine recently installed Windows 10 and the computer started to freeze because of it. It was then downgraded back to Windows 8 but the problem persisted.
I have an ASUS Desktop with a Core i7 3770, 16GB Ram, an Nvidia GTX 970, and a 250 GB Intel SSD and a 2 TB HDD. Windows 8.1 is loaded on the SSD. I am trying to update to Windows 10 with the free upgrade icon in the bottom left corner since it say...
AMD FX-8350 @ 4.3GHz
GTX 970 4GB
So I have had an earlier build of Windows 10 TP on my system installed onto my SSD and I was using that as my daily driver for about a month or so. It worked great and I was...
