Hello rajagopal,

You have several AdBlock addons in Chrome. Ad Block Express, AdBlock Plus Popup, Pop Up Blocker Program and AdBlock. I wonder whether there is some conflict going on.

To remove extensions/Addons.

In Google Chrome:

   

  • Click the wrench icon on the browser toolbar.
  • Click Tools.
  • Select Extensions.
  • One at a time click the trash can icon by all but one of your Adblock extensions
  • A confirmation dialog will appear, click Remove.

After that

Please go to the link below and follow the instructions on how to reset Google Chrome browser settings:

https://support.goog...r/3296214?hl=en

Try things again and come back and tell me if there is a change.

Hi Emeraldnzl,

 

In the Tools->Extensions page, I only see Adblock v2.39 installed. I don't see the other adblock programs in the extensions page...

Okay, let's do this:

Open notepad.

Please copy the contents of the code box below.

To do this highlight (click in the box and press Ctrl + A) the contents of the box and right click on it. Paste this into the open notepad. Save it to the Desktop as fixlist.txt.

Alternatively type the contents of the box into notepad and save it to your desktop as fixlist.txt.

NOTE. It's important that both files, FRST and fixlist.txt are in the same location or the fix will not work.

So, whenever my computer froze while browsing, I think it has always happened through chrome. It is true that my computer has frozen during other phases of booting and after booting, but whenever freezing happened while browsing, I think it was chrome.

Sorry, I was wrong. The last freezing happened while I was browsing in firefox. :( I rebooted in safe mode and followed the steps to fix chrome and here is the fixlog.txt

Okay, let's try a complete uninstall and reinstall. We need to remove your Firefox profile data and settings. Before we do this we want to backup your bookmarks.

To back up your bookmarks:

In Firefox click the Bookmarks button Show All Bookmarks (likely down the bottom) > click Import and Backup(toolbar along the top) > Export HTML...  and save it to your desktop.

Later when you re-install FF you can reverse the process and Import HTML... when the Wizard comes up just import the HTML file you had saved earlier.

Now

Please go to Uninstall Firefox and follow the instructions for uninstalling Firefox. Make sure you check the box to Remove my Firefox personal data and customizations.

After that reinstall Firefox.

Note: If you do not have the Firefox Installer on your machine you will need to download it from here.

Hi emeraldnzl,

 

I booted my computer into normal mode today and left idle in the login screen for a couple of minutes. Then when I clicked on login , there was "welcome" spinning wheel and my computer froze there. I rebooted my computer into normal mode again and logged in and left my computer idle, it froze in a short while after logging in. :(

Well I am out of ideas. I am not a techie and I think this is a technical issue.

 

We have ruled out a malware cause (although you can never be 100% sure) of this so I think now it's time to see if one of the Techs has any ideas.

 

Try opening a topic in the Windows 7 forum here.

 

Tell them the problem and that you have been here first. Provide a link to this topic.

 

I will be interested to here how it goes. :)
