    Started randomly freezing and becoming non responsive and I was playing a lot of VR with my Rift S and Phasmaphobia -- Rift S would go black and computer would be required to do a hard reboot from the tower.

    I have been deleting software that could be the culprit: F.lux, trying to reduce graphics etc, things I read online, I updated my chipset and made sure my GPU was up to date, I removed bitdefender and went back to windows defender.

    I have a Ryzen 5 2600x, 16gb ddr3200, rx 580 8gb gpu



    Anyways, I had my task manager open and I was doing a scan on windows defender, and my computer totally froze but I took a pic of this image which showed my windows defender cranking the hell out of my CPU and causing my computer to lock up

    Can anyone help me out with what to do from here? Why is this being caused? I was in the middle of a scan



    Thanks so much



    I can run Malwarebytes and it shows no malware

  2. Windows 10 freezes randomly


    I had already tried turning off fast startup, to no avail.
    Will look at the list you provided, thanks. Hard to do when computer freezes on the Windows loading screen though. *Biggrin
    I had tried that as well... no result.

    Turning off fast startup helped with this issue for another user on a different forum. For newbies, see steps Windows 10 Freezes Randomly.
