Could you zip at least 2 or 3 of them and attach to your next post

So it is locking before the crash dump is created

Lets have a look at a specific driver known to cause something similar

Open an elevated command prompt

Go Start > All Programs > Accessories
Right click command prompt and select Run as Administrator
Type or copy/paste the following command :

sc qc afs

Then copy the resultant data and post that here

In the same command prompt window type or copy/paste in the following :

sc config afs start= disabled

Then reboot and see if the problem is still apparent

OK, I did what you said and am attaching a screenshot of the response data. This appeared when I pasted both commands. I just rebooted, will let you know if it freezes again...

I am now thinking it could well be hardware

Download Speedfan and install it. Once it's installed, run the program and post here the information it shows. The information I want you to post is the stuff that is circled in the example picture I have attached.
If you are running on a vista machine, please go to where you installed the program and run the program as administrator.

When you reinstalled windows how did you do it ? Was it a full reformat and install or a repair install ?
