    So I've been trying to fix this problem all day. After I start up the computer it freezes a couple of minutes after I log into windows. In safe mode it works just fine, and I've tried clean booting and disabling all non-windows applications and software. It still freezes. I tried restoring to a previous state and it failed, I also did a full virus scan and found nothing.

    I'd rather find an easy fix instead of having to wipe my entire hard drive, buy a new CD/CD key, and reinstalling all of my software. I went to some other sources online and they weren't sure what to tell me.

    Any help is appreciated, thanks!

    Hi, if you can run System File Checker.
    Run at least 2-3 times.
    Click on Start - Search - Type cmd
    Right click on cmd.exe - select Run as Administrator.
    At the Command Prompt - Type
    sfc /scannow
    Press Enter.
    Let it run to completion - but do not close the cmd window.
    To save the log file.
    Copy and Paste the following in Command Prompt.

    findstr /c:"[SR]" %windir%\logs\cbs\cbs.log >%userprofile%\Desktop\sfcdetails.txt
    Press Enter
    On your desktop you will see a text file called sfcdetails.txt
    Log file saved here C:\Windows\Logs\CBS\CBS.log
