Hi, I kept getting a freezing screen and each time I had to reboot to get it working again. I went into Event Viewer and found this message.
Services running as a user account, try to run local services or network services account. Alas, I have not got a clue, what it is on about. Any help would be apreciatted.
Thanks guys.

hi, welcome to geekstogo,
I am not sure either but some more details would help
- are you on a network
- does it happen when doing some program
- in msconfig, do any of the services or startup point to something odd
- installed anything lately

Hi fleamailman. It freezes even when I am not doing anything. I am not on a Network. I did go into msconfig to stop a few things booting. I now only have the firewall a, anti virus and my HP printer booting. I use Comodo Firewall, and AVG antivirus. The other thing I notice when it freezes, is, that I cannot use the Control- alt- Delete buttons, to try to fix it. I have to use the reboot button only.

Nothing Mate. Now since I was in last, I uninstalled a USB pci hub. I had to try that as I have tried nearly everything else. So for for the last couple of hours, it has not crashed. I will keep my fingers crossed.
Thanks again Mate for your help.

No Good. The next thing I am going to try is ,swapping my new keyboard . This one is brand new. A4Tech. Although it has a spare usb on the one side, and a mike and sound socket on the other side, I have not used them. It could well be that it just is not compatable with the 754 winfast Motherboard, I dont know.

Hi Fleaman,
just thought I would get back to you to let you know I may have fixed that freezing screen problem. I decided to take out my 6800 nvidia graphics card and have had no trouble since, [ touch wood ]. It would appear that the graphics card was not compatable with the cheapo Winfast Motherboard. Mind you, the onboard graphics is not too bad at all.
Thanks again Mate, for your help.
