    Had to move on

    Nothing posted worked on this desktop. The problem continued. My relative simply could not continue this way and authorized me to look for a replacement. I really wanted to go with Windows 8.1 for obvious reasons however I found a very good deal on Amazon for a laptop well withing the price range and with more hardware than they would need. Two day delivery. Load what little software needed and remove bloatware included by Dell and we were ready to go. Over a week now and no problems (yet).

    For the record, my wife has been using Windows 10 for just over a year. She had to give up programs that worked for Windows 10 programs that sort of work. Every time MS does an update, I have to make adjustments to her software.

    As for me, I tried Windows 10 just before she decided to take the plunge. For me it had too many problems, both software and hardware-wise. I went back to Windows 8.1.

    Earlier this year I had to replace my laptop, I found one with Windows 7 and upgraded to Windows 8.1. Everything continues to work like a charm.

    P.S. My relative's desktop in sitting in my den until I have time to play with it. --- I'm still watching these posts to see if someone preforms a miracle.

    I have made it a rule that I don’t ever post in forum threads. But the instability of windows 10 for me and 85 pages of this thread and the complicated nature of this issue, I feel that what I have in my event viewer is important in sharing. if I have made an error in my judgment here please let me know and I will cease my dribble.

    I am a computer equipment technician by trade and not a software person. I have been experiencing the same freezing as everyone else in the list and have tried the following: (will append as i remember)

    changing my power profile,
    turning off windows firewall
    turning off windows defender
    turning off windows update

    using a clean install, and anything else I can’t remember after 2 weeks of trying things in this list.

    In the morning hours at 09/03/2017 0425 my computer froze. When I got on at 0830 I found that the 2 windows I had left open, the event viewer and a this webpage on page 11, I could not access but explorer would respond as well as my keyboard and mouse. In the event viewer, I discovered 14 errors of source sidebyside event ID 9, as well as error 33.

    I don't know if my information is something important enough to share, but i feel it might.

    I can provide my event view details upon request i just wanted to make sure that what i have is valid enough be for posting such a long list of data.


    As a side note, I play Morrowind and have been adding mod files to the game folder. I have been opening zip files with 7zip and coping them to the data file folder it is during this copying that my computer is freezing
    Hi seaeagle, event 33 is HW error, I get that a lot when OC goes wrong. You can get details if you double click on an event. If you are sure that your HW is OK, you could try running system checks first:
    sfc /scannow and dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth as well as diskcheck.

    I have been looking at my event log and have noticed that i have 280 events of error 225 and then a crash that did not log, not sure if that helps.

    Well i went ahead and did the following:

    enabled windows firewall
    enabled windows defender
    tried to disable the c1 something stated in my effect
    diabled BITS

    no my tests have failed. nothing in this stream of suggestions in this thread has had any effect what so ever
    I am starting to lean to buying a copy of windows 7 just for stability and sanity

    if there is some data that you guys want to see let me know before i reformat and reinstall Vista/Win7

    "I also have noticed that my pc tends to freeze while copying files from a 7zip file to a secondary harddrive", check that HDD good. Checkdisk, Download Hard Disk Sentinel and/or test program from disk's manufacturer.

    Does it do that just for a few seconds, then take off normally?
