    I have been having this issue for at least 2 months now. When I login, I can access everything on my desktop, start menu, internet , etc .... for a very short time (just a couple of minutes) and then windows stops responding. Even if I do shutdown -r -t 01 it will hang. The odd thing is my volume slider started intermittently going down and I would turn it back up and get my sound back and then it would go down again and I would have to repeat this cycle. Sometimes I notice my toolbar will turn gray and flash a bit and then flash back to the normal colors. It runs normal in safe mode and I repaired windows last night. This is my last effort before a format. Thanks in advance.
