So sometime I get this weird condition, where I am unable to open any programmes, even task manager will not open. When this happens, I am also unable to shutdown or restart the PC. The only way to solve this is to push the reset button and after the reboot windows runs normally again until the next time it happens. Does someone know what could be causing this? I attached the debug files and my system specs are current.

Can harddrive failure cause this, even if the failed drive is not the system drive?

*edit*

Ok, so I did CHKDSK /R on a drive which CrystalDiskInfo gave a warning for and it found two bad sectors and replaced them. I hope that was the only problem. I will mark this as solved if I don't get any problems for a week. Replacement HDD is already ordered.
