Computer freeze-ups Frequently

asked Apr 5, 2017 in General Discussions by Harry

I bought a new computer a few months ago but since last two weeks, it is randomly freezing. Most of the time, it freezes for about for 10-15 minutes but other times a hard restart is required. I even disabled some programs from running when the computer boots up such as Skype and that fixed it for about a week but now again it is causing the same issue. I even tried full scans with Microsoft Security Essentials and updated all my drivers and software. I do not think it is a graphics card issue but I am not able to fix this issue. Please help me out.

If your computer freezes up then it is always recommended to restart your system. Or if it doesn’t work then you can also try to reboot the system. For this, you have to hold down the on/off key until the computer turns off.
Most of the time, when you turn it back on, everything opens up fine and work returns to normal. It’s true that it happens again and again that could be e sign of virus which is a bad program and you will need to clean your hard drive or add more memory in order to get rid of this issue.
