Every so often. my computer sems to freeze for a few seconds, maybe 25, maybe a few more or less. Then, it starts up again. This happens often, often only a minute or two between feeezes. At first, I thought it was the mouse and reinstalled the mouse but then I realized that it was happening in the middle of an action I was doing, such as moving a file from one folder to another. I did all my check-ups...Malwarebytes, RegCure, Registry Mechanic, etc. Then I reinstalled Windows. All that did was give me a lot of extra work, such as d/l 82 updates and installing them.
It doesn't affect anything I do other than the fact that I have to stop every so often to get caught up. As I'm typing this, the machine has frozen 3 times. Happens both on-line and off-line. That doesn't seem to make any difference. Any ideas? Mary
