    Computer randomly freezes for a few seconds


    Lately I have been having major problems with my other computer as it started to freeze constantly and keep messing up then ended up just somehow frying itself, I got a new one and it has been freezing for a few seconds at a time usually when i'm using chrome (it's happened about 6 times so far) and i'm really scared that this might be a messed up PC too, I recently read this thread: Random Freezing and I was wondering if I could post my error log or whatever here too and someone can check it for me and tell me what program is doing it?

    EDIT: If possible could my post be moved here: General Support - Windows 8 Forums I wasn't aware of that section at first for some reason.

    Try A windows update. & see if it helps. this maybe caused by invasion of bugs by installed third-party programs & malware. so also download the microsoft's malicious software removal tool to perfectly scan for virus & malware. Hope this Helps.

    Just did this (full scan), said nothing was found. Hopefully this is fixed though, thank you for your reply.
