Solved: My computer keeps freezing, having to reboot manually.
So this started happening for a few days now. Just looking at the memory ram meter, it says its at 50% but I have 6GB of DDR3 RAM.

Computer will randomaly freeze, keyboard doesn't work and mouse won't respond. Have to push restart or shutdown button on my rig to restart my pc. Any help?

Ran a few AV scans using malwarebytes, AVG, iobit system care, CCleaner, etc. Nothing shows up? Any help would be awesome!

enter the windows task manager and check the processes to find the offending program using to much ram

also check run msconfig /startup which applications don't need to run at startup..leave system stuff alone only program files you can stop running at boot up

check avg in processes it may be the hog..

If you've been using AVG and CCleaner and IObit Advanced SystemCare to "clean and fix" files and the registry, it's unknown how much damage they've done to the Windows 7 operating system and if it's wreaking havoc with your computer.

Do you not recommend CCLeaner or SystemCare? Also AVG is a AV? What would you recommend?

AVG is a bloated problematic antivirus program that also contains a file/registry cleaner.

That's why myself and many others no longer recommend using it.

Your version of AVG is also outdated.

The current version is 2013.
