This is the first time it's frozen on me since you helped me, and it hasn't frozen again. It used to freeze all the time, so at least it's an improvement. Here's a new log tho:

Then why has my computer started to freeze again? It's done it twice now, and I've been staying on top of my stuff, doing scans every day

Not too sure bud... could be something software related... could be hardware related. As your HJT log is still clean, I don't think it is anything Malware replated.

First place I'd start looking for clues is the System and Application logs in the Event Viewer. Click Start>Run, type in eventvwr.msc. Check the System and Application logs for errors. Might give you some insight into what may be causing the lockups.

Hmmm, well by doing that I found that, everytime there's an error under tha Applications section, there's always 2 errors that happen at the exact same time, and it seems to be around the time my computer freezes.

The source for the first error is EventSystem, and the source for the second error is VSS.

EventSystem description:
The COM+ Event System detected a bad return code during its internal processing. HRESULT was 8007041F from line 44 of d:\nt_qxp\com\com1x\src\events\tier1\eventsystemobj.cpp. Please contact Microsoft Product Support Services to report this error.

For more information, see Help and Support Center at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/events.asp.



VSS description:
Volume Shadow Copy Service error: Unexpected error calling routine CoCreateInstance. hr = 0x80040206.

For more information, see Help and Support Center at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/events.asp.



And I get a lot of warnings about UserNT:
Windows saved user BRANDON\Owner registry while an application or service was still using the registry during log off. The memory used by the user's registry has not been freed. The registry will be unloaded when it is no longer in use.

This is often caused by services running as a user account, try configuring the services to run in either the LocalService or NetworkService account.

For more information, see Help and Support Center at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/events.asp.



Any ideas?

I dowloaded the Windows Updates, but I could only do it if I disabled my firewall for a little while. I have it enabled and everything, and then I did scans with Ad-Aware, Spybot Search & Destroy, AVG, and restarted in between scans, then defragged my hard drive. HOPEFULLY all that will fix my problem, but I guess I'll have to see...

Try this for me...

Click Start>Run, type in regsvr32 ole32.dll, hit Enter.

If the issue persists, try this...

Click Start>Run, type in sfc /scannow(note there is a space between sfc and /scannow). You will need the WindowsXP disc in the drive for this to work.

Let me know how it goes :)

Have things improved since you did the first command? Any way you can get your hands on an XP disc?

Well I haven't had my computer freeze on me, but that's only been one day, so I don't know if it fixed it or not yet. And I don't know, I probably could get a disc somewhere.

OK... try to get a hold of an XP disc and run the sfc /scannow command. I think you may have some file corruption somewhere.
