I've begun to experience this for the past week. The computer in question is using Windows 7. I've gone in to msconfig and disabled all the windows processes, and tried to find the culprit, but everything installed looks legit. The computer's used in our living room and lately is only used for occasional web browsing but mainly for Skype with family. (we're in Hawaii, they're in Vancouver, WA).

The video card that was installed died 2 months ago so we've been running it off the i3 proc. Please let me know if I can provide any more information, any feedback is greatly appreciated.

Scrub your system, it could be teaming over with crud files. Run CCleaner loaded up with CCEnhancer, System Ninja and then Auslogics Disc Defrag. Click, download, install and run...

http://singularlabs.com/software/system-ninja
http://www.auslogics.com/en/software/di ... g/download

Then report back.

I have CC cleaner, but you're right I haven't done that in a while...haven't tried those others, but can and will let you know.

Thank you for your reply :)

Thanks, it worked. First time it's shutdown properly in over a week :-)

Fist pump! Now if you want to really show your system some love, open it up and clean out the physical crud too.
