    Random Window Freezing


    I use MS OneNote for all of my lecture notes, homework, assignments, reading notes and lately it keeps freezing up on me. It has happened to other programs as well where literally just that one window freezes. The whole computer doesn't freeze up as I am able to open other programs but whatever program is frozen at the time will allow me to move the mouse around but I can not click on any of the buttons on the screen. Occasionally I have found it being predictable, where once it would freeze if I were to highlight any text and another time it would freeze if I used a plugged in mouse vs the mouse on the keyboard.

    I was going to upload the data requested on other posts but I wasn't sure if it was relevant to this particular situation since I am not getting any BSOD's but I can post them if needed.

    Hi, welcome.

    You can upload what you speak of.

    In the meantime, uninstall any 3rd party antivirus and/or firewall with their respective removal tools, in safe mode. Set Windows Firewall to Auto and same for Windows Defender.

    Install the SM Bus driver if it is missing, for your chipset and also do the same if you have not installed the proprietary storage driver for your chipset.
