Hello, everyone. I hope you can help me solve a problem that's been irritating me for a while now.

Occasionally whenever I move my cursor to the taskbar, I notice that it's frozen (as in, I hover some of the icons and there is no selection and I can't interact with them). After a 2-3 seconds, it goes back to normal.

And here is the weirdest part: this is a new PC and a remember it happening with my previous one as well. I thought it might be a buggy Windows update but the issue does not occur on my laptop. Could be software that's causing it, since I installed mostly the same things on the previous PC and the new one.

Can anyone help me triangulate the cause for this? I have no idea what to look for to find the root of this problem. It's driving me crazy.

Here are my current PC specs if that helps:

  • Z390M PRO Gaming
  • Intel i5 9400F
  • RTX 2060 SUPER
  • 16GB RAM

Run one program at a time and see if the freezing occurs with that program.
Thanks for the reply!

Since it's an intermittent problem, it might be hard to replicate it when doing that. It might not happen not because it's fixed but because it took longer to happen :/

I was hoping there was a way to check Windows logs to know what was causing the freezes. I have written down the times they last occurred so all I'd need is a way to check what happened at those times, right?

I took a look at Event Viewer but I have no idea what to look for :(

Ok, thanks!

I ran this tool after the issue happened again. For reference, it was at 9:03 PM on 06/06. Here is the log: https://pastebin.com/aSGb55zP

Hope you can find something! Cheers!

Sorry, I think it came out like that because of my OS language. Is there a way to change how the log is generated in that tool?

Google translate has a 3900 character limit - I cannot translate it for you.
======
Try System File Checker.
In the search box type > cmd
Right click > Select Run as administrator
In the Command Prompt window
Type [copy and paste] sfc /scannow
Press Enter.
Let it run until it has completed the scan.

Restart your pc and let us know if it has helped.

Yeah, I ran this sfc scan and something called a dism, both of which I saw on an article somewhere. Those found no errors and the problem persisted :(

As for the log, I meant if there's a way to generate it in English. I just downloaded the tool and followed the instructions...

Check My-Event-Viewer - first post back what it says under Applications.

https://www.nirsoft.net/utils/my_event_viewer.html

Download link at the bottom of the page

https://www.nirsoft.net/utils/myeventviewer-x64.zip
Ok, I tried running this tool and it would consistently crash after the numbers get too high...

Then I tried pressing Stop after it got to a certain number and it gave me an "incorrect parameter" error, but still showed me a list.

It seems to always happen after Windows service "Background Intelligent Transfer Service" was toggled from On Demand to Automatic. And then from Automatic back to On Demand (there are two entries, one right next to the other).

I noticed another entry that always has an entry at the time the freezing happens: Updated Windows Defender status successfully to SECURITY_PRODUCT_STATE_ON

What made your enter Services to change "Background Intelligent Transfer Service" ?
I would leave "Background Intelligent Transfer Service" set to Automatic.

Are there any other changes you made there?
Does the pc have all of the latest Windows updates installed?

Oh no, those are the messages I saw at Event Viewer at the times the freezing happened. So the ones with Background Intelligent Transfer Service were like this:

The start type of the Background Intelligent Transfer Service service was changed from auto start to demand start.
and a short while later

The start type of the Background Intelligent Transfer Service service was changed from demand start to auto start.
That is why I figured Windows toggling it back and forth could be causing the issue but I didn't mess with it in services.

How often does this freeze up of your system happen - daily, once a week?
Most of the start up errors in Event Viewer are corrected in a blink of an eye and the system starts up without any problem.
That sometimes, not always, applies to the Application and System errors that are logged there.
That said, if you can find a way to post the Event Viewer log file it may help us solve your problem.

It's a least once a day, usually more.

I feel like the fact that this also happened to my previous PC might be important. This new one is all new parts except for the HDD, which I kept as a secondary drive and installed a new SSD for the OS.

Then this might mean the issue might be at 1) the HDD or 2) any software I might have installed on both PCs and is causing this freezing. I was hoping there was a straightforward way to pinpoint this (like detect if any specific software is causing the freezing by looking at logs).
