Hello everyone. This is one of my first posts but have read the w7forums for a long time. I've had the random windows 7 freezes for a while now. Sometimes it will go for days without freezing, or like this morning I had to restart 4 times in a row after it froze as soon as my desktop loaded.

I've read most of the huge 50+ page 'fixes' thread but I am not technical enough to attempt most of the recommendations. I hope you can put up with my computer ignorance and walk me through some fixes. I can update drivers, but anything else messing with bios or internal settings I am at a loss.

I am attaching my system information, hopefully we can start with some basic tests (hard drive/memory tests I do now know how to do). Hopefully it can be fixed. Thank you for any help you can provide.

Ryan

It looks like you might have malware, specifically:

RunDLLEntry c:\windows\system32\rundll32.exe c:\windows\system32\ambrune.dll,rundllentry Public HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

Download, install then run and update the definitions in a free program called Malwarebytes. Let it scan and remove all it finds.

The freezing is otherwise very likely caused by McAfee. Use the tool found here, in safe mode, to remove it:

AV Uninstallers - Windows 7 Forums

Reboot and install MSE to replace it.
