    Sorry I couldn't help but take a peek at my newest signature (below). I think it appropriately reflects my confusion of late.

    Nothing in Eventvwr under the System list right? I've had 2 SSD's now act up with 8 and gives 2 disk errors at a time.

    Something like these:

    The IO operation at logical block address 10f1bc60 for Disk 2 was retried.
    Reset to device, \Device\RaidPort0, was issued.

    I think it might be avast. The freeze does not occur as much without avast real time. Also it only freezes for less than a second.

    Hmm... FYI, I'm using Avast 8.0.1483 and I don't experience any freezing issues.

    Weird I am running the same version. Let me check if I edited my settings. My settings look default :S

    Edit1: I am doing a lot of system maintenance.
    Over the last 2 days/nights I have ran
    • Avast full scan (2 threats found)
    • Malware Bytes (3 threats found)
    • Defragged

    It is not avast. It froze for 6 seconds while avast was disabled. Once again nothing in event viewer.

    It froze again.

    I think it is hardware related as it is just the mouse and keyboard that stops responding
