    Umm, hi.
    I have NOOOO idea what is wrong with my computer.

    So, the basics: windows 7, HP 6754y model. Bought in May 2011.
    Tech Support Guy System Info Utility version 1.0.0.2
    OS Version: Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium, Service Pack 1, 64 bit
    Processor: AMD Athlon(tm) II X4 640 Processor, AMD64 Family 16 Model 10 Stepping 0
    Processor Count: 4
    RAM: 3839 Mb
    Graphics Card: ATI Radeon HD 4200, 256 Mb
    Hard Drives: C: Total - 940556 MB, Free - 845068 MB; D: Total - 13209 MB, Free - 1623 MB;
    Motherboard: FOXCONN, 2AB1
    Antivirus: avast! Antivirus, Updated and Enabled

    Yes, my antivrus is only free avast!, and I have that Windows Security Essentials thingy. My local internet provider said that'd be all I would need since I don't do sketchy stuff with my computer. And my dad is cheap and won't buy me good stuff.


    The problem: I thought that anytime I used my computer before the internet loaded on it and my two antivirus/whatever programs started, it would freeze and require a system restore. But two days ago, I started up Chrome after those things loaded and the computer froze anyway. Anytime this happens, I'm forced to do a system restore. I try to restart it like 3-4 times before I do a restore, but then I just admit defeat and restore and even after that, sometimes I have to restart a couple times before it starts working. Only now, my computer won't shut down. I tried to shut it down and after 15 minutes it wouldn't shut down and I just went to bed. Woke up 13 hours later (I don't get enough sleep on weekdays, crash on weekends), and it STILL hadn't shut down.

    I'm really concerned about this because my family can't afford to get another computer if something happens to this. :( There were 6 years between the purchase of our last computer and this one. I am literally the only person who uses this computer, it's 100% mine. I don't use P2P file sharing, and I don't visit sketchy sites, unless I accidentally go to a bad site while working on homework... it happens, lol. So I immediately end my browser if that happens. The only programs I have are League of Legends, WoW, iTunes, legal editing programs, legal office programs, and the like. I don't have any major additions to my computer since it's really only used for facebook, homework, minor gaming, and online shopping. Stuff like that.
