  1. My computer freezes a lot


    Hello.I am facing a problem with my computer since last year and I couldn't find any solution to solve it. While I am browsing the net, playing games, or sometimes even doing nothing but opening some folders, my computer randomly freezes and I can't do anything but move the mouse. If I am playing a game, the sound just stops completely, and if I am listening to music on YouTube or even any random video, the sound continues to play as if nothing had happened. It takes approximately 1 minute for my computer to return to its normal state. I have tried many things including updating my drivers

    Hi,



    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Community, we appreciate your interest in Windows 10. 



    I understand the inconvenience that you are facing on Windows 10, we will help you with this issue.

    This issue might occur, due to any third party application conflict.

    I would suggest you to try the below methods and check if it helps.

    Method 1: I would suggest you to
    Run Maintenance task


    The Run maintenance task checks issues that might slow down your computer, such as how many users are currently logged on to the computer and whether multiple programs are running at the same time.

    Follow the below steps.


    • Press Windows + X on the keyboard.

    • Select Control Panel.

    • Select Troubleshooting.

      System and Security.

    • Follow on screen instructions.
    If issue persist, I suggest you to try method 2.

    Step 1: Clean boot

    A clean boot is performed to start Windows by using a minimal set of drivers and startup programs. This helps eliminate software conflicts that occur when you install a program.

      restart your Computer.
