Windows 10: Windows 10 freezes randomly
I fix it after restart explorer.exe
and I installed graphics drivers
after windows updated it stopped happening
I updated to 14393.10
Have 4 computers 2 had 8.1 p reinstalled when upgraded to windows 10,the others had 10 p reinstalled, the 2 with 8.1 freeze the other 2 do not when anniversary upgrade installed,this needs investigating ,people on this thread talk about going back to 8.1,microsoft knows this I told the
See, mine was only happening when using RDC today, happened twice. The reason I know this was the culprit is because when I logged on to the machine that I was remoting into, to see if I could RDP back into my machine (thinking it might be periphials for some reason) As soon as it was disconnected, the CTRL ALT DEL took effect.
Hello everyone, i registered just so i can post the my findings about this freezing problem on windows 10.
a little bit about what i tried to fix the issue.
2. all the suggestions on the forums
3. no acronis.
4. no antivirus.
it was driving me nuts. but i did notice one thing that's common to alot of the people here is the fact that we have an asus mobo, it got me thinking deeper, eventually what i did was update bios but that didn't help, then i decided to try to play with the bios settings and well 48 hours without any freezing, what i disabled was asuses OC thing, disable any type of automatic cpu or dram adjustments so it only works on what i specified so it doesn't change any voltage or clock speed.
that seems so far working.
i hope this helps people
basically go into bios and disable under advanced setting anything that has to do with boost/ai overclocking etc. make everything manual and default. so that there will be no voltage or clock speed change by the system without you doing it. AI boost it's called i think kinda hard to screenshot bios.
Disclaimer: I'm not sure exactly what you mean about it being hard to ss in bios.
I have an Asus 170 Pro Gaming. With a USB flash drive inserted, pressing F12 will print the screen and let me choose to save it to the USB.
After updating to the anniversary update a week ago (about 4 days after its initial release) I haven't experienced any hangs. They'd been haunting me for over half a year...
Just in case, I, like Kimak, would appreciate it if you could post a screenshot about the exact setting you're talking about. I had the AI boost setting set to manual the whole time when I was getting hangs. There're other settings here and there (i.e., CPU SVID) with help text like "*(disable) this if you are overclocking".
Regardless, thanks a lot for posting a potential fix!
I disabled it last night and noticed an old issue I was having with this mobo reemerge.
The issue is this.
If I turn the PC on from a powered off state (not from a reset once it has booted), the PC will power on for a few seconds and then turn off before getting to POST. 2 seconds after that it'll turn on and be good as gold.
I don't recall messing with CPU SVID when I first got my machine. A couple bios updates later when trying to muck with overclocks, that power-on reset got fixed. Must have been set to Auto automatically via bios update, or maybe I set it like (don't remember).
Either way, around the time that issue got resolved I was running into these "random" hangs (primarily while playing games).
I'll post back here if I get a hang with CPU SVID set to disabled.

MS has released a tool to help with this problem. Though it is still in test, it might be worth trying out for those fighting freezes. See my blog post for a download link and more information: "Windows Self-Healing Tool in Test."
My solution to random freezes
After July upgrade, random freezes seemed to occur when using Web pages with lots of drag-n-drop action. It occurred to me that my desktop has a USB Bluetooth adapter for my wireless mouse.
I removed the USB adapter and replaced it with a wired USB mouse.
The freezes have not recurred. So i deduce that the USB Bluetooth HID driver is implicated. It's not a Microsoft driver, so naturally it is highly suspected.
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...
