    I've had freezing problems with Win10 all along. Then, I finally got fed up, and after the RTM came out, did a clean-install.

    Now, I have no freezing issues at all.

    As an update to my earlier post, my problems persist even after removing external devices. The only external devices I have are an external monitor through a USB port, an external disk through a USB port, and a mouse and keyboard. I haven't tried disabling the mouse and keyboard but removing the other devices hasn't helped.

    Im now trying the timebroker suggestion and will update.

    For me sometimes after a reboot its immediately unusable and sometimes it takes a few minutes. Seldom goes for a full hour without locking up.

    Starts with start menu being unresponsive but if I have a windows explorer already open I can navigate through it. Then the desktop becomes unresponsive to icon clicks, etc., and finally all apps and windows become unresponsive as if waiting for something in a queue to clear out ahead of it.
    I have exactly the same problem!

    My first two weeks with Windows 10 were smooth and great then suddenly, after an automatic update, I started getting the horrible freezing problem where my laptop's touchpad could move the arrow around but nothing happened when I clicked on things. First I tried to revert to a restore point with no success, then I dialed back to Windows 8.1 where things still froze, then I even tried to go back to Windows 8. Fortunately, I got an error message for that last idea and it didn't do it, saving me additional frustrations of having to reinstall all sorts of things. I went back to Windows 10, waiting the two hours for it to finish and everything seemed good... for a few days. Then the freezing happened again. After re-reading suggestions, some from here, I disabled the action center notifications. Click the windows icon in the bottom left corner, choose 'Settings', then choose 'System' and then 'Notifications and actions'. I turned off ALL notifications. Since then (two days ago) everything is great. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that the problem doesn't return.

    @letmein: this thread is not about install problems - it's about random freezes in a running windows 10 - in my case a clean windows 10 install (no upgrade) on hardware that worked for 2 years with windows 7 without any problems. a lot of people have the same problem: it seems suddenly programms can't write to disk anymore, what leads to a complete system freeze within a couple of minutes, only a hard reset can solve the problem. the problem occurs randomly independend of the currently running software. sometimes the system works for hours, sometimes I have to reboot 5 times an hour...

    A Microsoft USB mouse was the problem to me.

    Alexat: what resolved the problem for me was disabling the timebroker.

    you can edit the Registry to disable "Runtime Broker", but this will also prevent Microsoft Store Apps from running.*

    Runtime Broker is a service called Time Broker, which can be disabled through editing the registry.

    Right-click on the Start Menu Icon. Go to RUN and type regedit.exe and select OK.

    Find the following entry:

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\TimeBroker] "Start"=dword:00000003*

    Change the 3 to a 4.

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\TimeBroker] "Start"=dword:00000004

    4 is Disabled, 3 is Manual and 2 is Automatic startup.*

    Before editing, the original value was 3. Set to 4 to disable. Just change the 3 to a 4 through the MODIFY menu selection, exit regedit and reboot your system.

    Once or twice a day my system was randomly freezing for minutes at a time after the 10 upgrade. Total lock up! Freezing was accompanied with the following Event Error in the system log:
    The device, \Device\Ide\iaStor0, did not respond within the timeout period.

    Turns out that my Samsung 850 Pro did not like the ALPM setting in in the Intel drive controller. Fixed it by downloading the latest Intel drive controller manager software and turning off the ALPM settings on that drive. Been freeze free ever since.

    Please tell me exactly how you did this. I also have a Samsung Evo 850 SSD drive. I have an ASUS motherboard. Also, are you using an AMD cpu?

    No, I have an Intel based system, and it is fairly old. I used the Intel Rapid Storage Technology app to change the Link Power Management setting but that is not going to work on an AMD system. It is my understanding however that the issue is with the Samsung SSD's and not the controller - you can just avoid the issue with the right settings. I understand the setting can also be found in Windows' Advanced Power Settings but may require a registry setting before the option shows up. I found some instructions by Searching for 'Aggressive Link Power Management (ALPM) Windows'. It was the first link on Google. Please note they provide a .reg file which should always be used with caution.
