I am able to boot my system but I am getting frequent, intermittent freezes. I have scanned for viruses and spyware, I have defrag my hard drive and also cleaned the registry.
When the system freezes I can move the mouse around but cannot do anything else. Sometimes I am able to get things going again by pressing Ctrl+Alt+Del which brings up the task manager, and then just clicking on the performance and processes tabs. For some reason in some cases that will release whatever is locking up and I can close the task manager and get back to work. Other times the system doesn't even allow me to bring up the task manager. When that happens the only solution is to power off my system and reboot.
I have thought about reformatting, reinstalling Windows and then reinstalling all of my applications but that is a daunting task. I'm hoping that this repair feature will allow me to fix things without having to reinstall all the apps.
