Could be a virus?

if its a corrupt system file then you could try repairing windows or even a fresh install...

It may be a bit soon for a recommendation to reinstall. We haven't even tried to fix the problem yet. If you reinstall, you will lose all your updates and many system settings and need to do that all over again, provided it succeeds. If it does not succeed, you are risking losing everything on your machine.

Can you post a picture of what you mean by "configuring"?

If you have a lot of new problems and freezes, you might have problems with either your RAM or hard drive. Make sure you have everything backed up just in case.

Test you memory.

MemScope (Floppy and CD images.)
Roadkil's RAM Test
Microsoft Memory Test (floppy or CD ISO image)
Memtest86

If you have enough memory sticks, you can test them by removing one at a time and see if the problem disappears.

If you are running Vista or 7, tap F8 on boot and choose the memory diagnostic, or if you can boot up, go to Start > Search and type:

mdsched.exe

Choose to run a memory diagnostic on next boot. Or, you can boot from the DVD and run it from there.
