I attempted to open Limewire a month ago--first mistake, I know--and noticed it froze my computer whenever I opened it. I then noticed that whenever I played music downloaded per paid subscription to Napster in windows media player it would freeze at somepoint, 3 or 4 minutes into my first song. I tried to do a trendmicro housecall scan over the internet and it froze while trying to install it. I downloaded Avira Antivir and tried to do a scan and it froze. I tried to log into safe mode and do a scan there and it froze at 21% while searching its own directory. Every time I've run the scan, it freezes around 20-23%. No detections are made up to that point.
I can serve the web for days with no freezing, until I'm running a virus scan or listening to my subscription music. Not quite sure what's going on. Please let me know if you want me to run the hijackthis program and post it.
