Windows 7 Freeze Persistant after 30 sec


Recommended Posts



My notebook is freezing in windows. A complete lock up or freeze, there is no error message, no inputs accepted from mouse, keyboard, plugging in USB device etc. This usually happens exactly 30 seconds after windows (desktop) opens. But occasionally happens during "Welcome" message or even as desktop is opening in safe mode.


Sometimes I'm able to get into Windows using "Safe Mode" and "Safe Mode with Networking".

From there I ran PCMatic and removed an instance of malware. Scanned again and everything is fine.



Here is what I'm running

Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit

HP TouchSmart TX2 tablet/convertible notebook


Recently installed

Garmin Maps Updater



I can't uninstall these programs using safe mode and I can't get my system to go to a restore point.


Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.
