  1. My windows explorer keeps going unresponsive


    I'm hoping someone can help me look at his because it's tiring. About 20 times per day my explorer.exe will stop working properly. My search bar stops working, the windows button won't do anything either and my taskbar will get locked up. The icon tray bottom right will also stop responding. I did a fresh install a few weeks back and it's still happening. Restarting explorer will fix it for maybe half an hour and then I get to do it again. Any ideas?

    I'm using an i7-7820HK with a gtx 1080

    LibreOffice keeps going "unresponsive"

    I like to keep 5 or 6 spreadsheets open all the time. Currently on LibreOffice 6.1.1.2 (x64) Since about 3 months and 2 updates ago, it keeps going unresponsive and I have to shut it down, several times a week. I do use hibernate on Windows 10 but not sure if that is causing the problem. The laptop is only otherwise used for browsing.

    The spreadsheets are not big and nothing special. A few basic formulae and one spreadsheet has a basic chart. The only other problem I also only recently noticed is that one formula has a delayed update, so I have to change a cell value, a second time, for the formula to be up-to-date, otherwise it reflects the previous value.

    I'm thinking of trying an alternative to LibreOffice but would be shame if there is a simple solution to going unresponsive. Any suggestions? (or confrmation if it is a known issue)


    EDIT to add: It is after a period of having LibreOffice minimized and I try to "restore" the window, that it goes not responding.

    windows explorer keeps rebooting

    I took my comp out of the case yesterday because I wanted to get started on painting/modding the chassis.. on first boot I had this issue but after I restarted my comp it went away. Today I go to turn it on and when it gets in windows it just constantly says windows explorer stopped responding and just keeps rebooting windows explorer non stop.

    I tried starting windows in safe mod but than it still keeps rebooting and even faster since the system is faster in safe mode.. well when I force shutdown last message that pops up before it turns off is like this.

    "0000-00000- something something - cannot read memory" something similar to that.

    the mobo is on top of the mobo box I plugged everything back in perfectly but ofc as usual my comp gives me problems.. or just vista lol I dont think my computer likes vista for its always given me problems but this is the software I want to use and wil not go back to xp since it has no dx10.

    my mobo has a little bend in it from my zalman 9500 cpu cooler backplate, but I would think that if the memory/ram does not have perfect contact than he comp would not work...

    Anyone have suggestions they will be appreciated, I have a headache now lol.
