    Windows 10 randomly locks up


    Hi,

    I have a Windows 10 problem.

    My PC is randomly locking up. Sometimes while using and sometimes while I am away. I have to power cycle to get it back. There are no responses to the mouse or keyboard.


    I have been trying to troubleshoot this issue, and only have the event files to look at. No dump files or anything else seems to be available.

    If there are other log files that could help, please let me know and I will post. Some recent errors are new but the one that has been existing is the DCOM 10016. The others like 7001, 10001 only appeared recently. Thanks

    One other thing I noticed is that whenever it freezes it means that there is a windows update or KB available...

    Windows 10 Tweaks

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK

    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.
