  • I had a similar problem months ago. The cause was a hardware problem: the PS2 mouse had a bad electrical connection, that caused the mouse freezing.

    If you're using a PS2 mouse, try another one (better if it's a USB mouse).


    I accept you disagree with me. However, never, ever, make this error again!

  • Does it only happen when you connected to internet only?

    Run Windows Update and install all updates.

    In start type Windows Defender and run a full system scan.

    Windows will protect you against DoS throgh Windows Firewall. If DoS is causes by a vulnerability of another application it also could detect with Windows Defender .

  • Have you installed any third party software? If so, please uninstall them one by one for testing.
