    A couple of days ago, I did a system restore, took what files I needed, and reformatted afterwards. In the past, I got freezes every now and then, even after unchecking some of the stuff I didn't need starting up at login. Now, it freezes at the same rate, if not, more often than before. I'd really like to find out what the source behind all this is.

    Specs: HP a1440n Windows Home Edition, SP3 2.80 GHz, 2 GB RAM

    Here's a HiJackThis log as well, to help you out:
