Task Bar and other random freezes RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi 

     

    Randomly while doing any task my task bar will freeze, cannot click on it, also during this time I cannot minimize/maximize any windows. Pressing crtl/alt/del and selecting task manager, then closing task manager makes my pc run normal again. That is until the issue happens again and it happens a lot its annoying.

     

    Currently my PC is a fresh install of windows 7 (done about 4 hours ago) its also fully update etc. I'm tearing my hair out trying to figure out what is causing this can anyone help ?

  • Hi 

     

    Problem solved, it was my mouse that was causing the issue, my (now old mouse) was flashing red/yellow on the scroller it had been for months. I had narrowed the problem down to graphics card, or possibly mouse. (they were both stabs in the dark really)

    It did the same in safe mode and also had adverse results when using Linux (I have a Fedora Core/Windows 7 dual boot) how ever when I has the problem Fedora Core would crash all together.

     

    I have my new mouse now and all works perfect and has done all night :) success!!!!!!!!
