    That link got blotted out.

    My Windows 8 on this system used to do that, after beating my head over it for months, I finally DISABLED all Automatic Windows Store updates.

    Because when I checked the Event log from right before the Freeze, it had just started BITS and tried to download updates for several Store Apps.

    So it's in the STORE app, when the app comes up, drag out the Charms bar, and click the GEAR, go into APP UPDATES and SHUT OFF automatic updates for apps.

    The moment I did this, the next day my PC was still running.

    I have Store App automatic update already turned off. Could it be Windows Update too, that causes this freeze?

    FYI - this is TonyB's topic. If you'd like assistance/advice - please start your own topic.

    TonyB - I'd suspect that there might be an issue with the.NET stuff (but I'm far from certain about it) - but since DISM probably fixed it, I'd leave well enough alone for now.

    All I know is, I had the exact same Freezing issue - It would happen some time between 12 midnight and 3 am every night.

    I already had Automatic Updates for Desktop shut off, I never ever allow those. It was the Automatic Updates for STORE apps that was causing this problem though. That can only be shut off through the Store App and it's "Settings" panel. I was offering this as a possible solution for whoever was having the problem.

    Once I shut that off, and my Automatic Updates were already off, the freezing stopped.

    I think the OP should check his System and Application event logs from the last time it froze, and see if BITS had started, and if it was trying to update Store apps, that way they can see if it is the same issue as my system was having. That's all I can offer for this kind of freeze issue, in my case a very specific scenario caused it- I doubt if those same issues will be reproduced on a totally unrelated machine, but you never know.

    Anyway, if someone has a problem that is akin to being almost exactly the same issue, I don't see why a "Me Too" is unwarranted. If an original post got buried, go boink it though.

    Bushido - please be patient. There are only a few of us who troubleshoot BSOD's. I'm also updating my website for Win8.1 I will get to your post in the order that it was posted (I work my way up from the oldest to the newest as my time allows).
