The Situation:

When I'm using Windows XP, at random moments (although triggered more often in certain situations such as checking e-mail, viewing quicktime video, etc...) My Keyboard input will freeze, and Mouse click action will freeze. The mouser cursor is still free to move, however it retains it's cursor image.

Ctrl-Alt-Delete, Will cause the task manager to come up, however it is slow to do so, and when it does keyboard and mouse interaction is still frozen.

Ctrl-Alt-Delete ALSO tends to allow the first (and only the first) click or keystroke command to be passed from the input buffer to whichever program or button I'm attempting to use.

Attempted Solutions:

  • I've attempted Switching the keyboard for others both PS/2 and USB, to eliminate hardware issues.
  • I've attempted re-installing both HID Drivers, USB Drivers, USB Controller drivers, Motherboard drivers, Ensuring my BIOS is latest flash, Keyboard and Mouse drivers, and anything else that I could think of possibly causing this problem (short of windows itself)
  • I've Run A FULL Virus scan with AVG, Trend-Micro, and F-Prot. No results found by any.
  • I've run Spyware scans with AVG Anti-spyware, and Spybot S&D.
  • I've manually watched the running processes by installing SysInternals Process Explorer and I've attempted killing any processes that appear to be reacting at the time of freeze, and no effect, except that cssrs.exe which causes the computer to restart when terminated, but I don't strongly suspect this process, and I believe it's a critical system process.

Where this leaves me:

CoNfUsEd.

Any help appreciated.

To download HJTsetup.exe To Download HijackThis go to the following: http://www.thespykiller.co.uk/forum/index.php?action=tpmod;dl=item5
Filename = 1137518044HJTsetup.exe

Save the file to your desktop.
Double click on the HJTsetup.exe icon on your desktop.
By default it will install to C:\Program Files\HijackThis.
Continue to click Next in the setup dialog boxes until you get to the Select Additional Tasks dialog.
Put a check by Create a desktop icon then click Next again.
Continue to follow the rest of the prompts from there.
At the final dialog box click Finish and it will launch Hijack This.
Click on the Do a system scan and save a log file button. It will scan and then ask you to save the log.
Click Save to save the log file and then the log will open in notepad.
At the top of the Notepad HJT log screen, hit Edit then Select All then click Edit and then click Copy doing that copies the text to the clipboard, you won't see it yet....
Come back here to this thread and Paste the log in your next reply. DO NOT have Hijack This fix anything yet. Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required.

A security expert should take a look at your log - please be patient.

PS. Since posting that Hijack log, I've eliminated the lines that list:
All lines listing (File Missing)
Dealio Toolbar lines (it was already removed but there were some remenant reg keys)
Msasvc.exe line (file had already been removed and neutralized, service entry remained.)
awtqn listing (already neutralized, remnant registry entry)

Problem had not changed in any way.

Here's my new listing:

Add: I've noticed more than once that when I return to my computer in the morning, the folder options dialog is open. Nothing in it is changed, and nothing else has gone wrong.

Hi,

I have what sounds to be exactly the same problem of you and the kicker is I have pretty much the same system (Athlon 2800+, 1 gig ram, XP Pro, ASUS motherboard). (my symptoms are that the PC will boot but simply freeze for maybe 10 seconds out of every minute. The mouse still moves but doesn't do anything for the duration of the freeze. If I continue to use the PC the freezes appear to increase in frequency and duration until the whole system locks after about 5 minutes or so and not even the mouse keeps moving).

Tests I've run so far have confirmed the problem is not hard drive, OS or virus related as I've physically removed the primary disk and run it in an other PC with no problems whatsoever.

I find it very hard to believe cooling is an issue in my PC as the whole thing is optimized to keep it cool and the temp readings are all fine.

I was running a 300watt PSU, (retarded and lazy considering I was running 3 HDs and a DVD drive plus 5 fans and graphics), but I've upgraded this to a good 500watt PSU and still have the same issue, (even when run with the other 2 HD's and DVD not connected).

I'm now a little lost as to what to test next frankly. I guess it's either a RAM issue, motherboard, CPU or graphics card... I figure I'll try the onboard graphics or another card to eliminate that component and then try booting off the OS disk out of my other PC.

If I have the same problem then it has to be something wrong with either RAM, motherboard or CPU. I don't think I have any alternate RAM to try unfortunately. I suspect its not a sudden compatibility issue as I've run those three components together since the rig was built a couple of years ago.

Ok so 7 passes with memtest-84 and not a single error... guess it's probably not the ram.

Anyone got any bright ideas?

Same problem here.. on my PC at home as well as at work. and both have started to happen recently. What's more, at home.. the PC is a fresh re-install. Could it be a suspect windows update that's causing this?

I don't think mine can be - as I said I've removed the hard drive from my pc which is having problems and used it in a second PC - no issues on that one whatsoever... so can't be software related for me at least.

Over time this problem became less and less and now I'm noticing that it just hasn't happened in a long time...odd for a problem on a computer to solve itself through fade-out... Regardless that article you posted wasn't my problem, although it was a close match. I'm afraid I can't offer any solutions, since I don't know what caused my problem. I can say that your 500w PSU, is probably a bit overkill, albeit the 300 was cutting it close, a good QUALITY 350 should have done the trick. I had an old 300 cause a hard drive to constantly park and re-park the hard drive, sounded like the "click of death", turns out the power supply was cutting out one of the leads on the non motherboard power supply feeds, and the hard drive was resetting like mad....in fact I've all but recovered the hard drive....got most of the data back.

Funnily enough my problem just stopped happening too!

Agreed the 500watt psu is probably overkill, but it's a quality unit and was on sale right next to (and £5 cheaper than) its little brother 400watt model... couldn't justify buying the less powerful model for £5 more.

Meh – I'll probably need the extra watts at some point if I do something silly with raid or water cooling.
