System freezes during "Rate and improve your compter's performance" RRS feed

  • Question

  • If I run the "Rate this computer", I see status from process and then Disk Performance.  Then, I don't see any disk activity and nothing is happening.  It is difficult to start task manager. i eventually had to cold-boot (power down and restart).

    Is this common?  Is there a way to capture and error and sent to appropriate blah blah?

  • Hi,


    Thanks for the post!


    When you rate the computer, there are many running tasks, like adjusting visual effects, indexing options, power settings and etc. It would influence the speed of the computer. And the process of rating will take you a few minutes then give you some scores.


    Do you get the scores after the rating?


    Since some third-party software or malware will influence the speed and results. Please try Clean Boot, then rate the computer again.


    Refer to http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows7/Ways-to-improve-your-computers-performance


    Please feel free to give me any update.


    Best Regards,
