Windows 7 Hangs on Desktop!

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
This problem has been on and off for a while now, and was happening with my last PC I had only a few months ago. Its very frustrating.

The PC boots up to desktop just fine but i can't launch any programs that use internet for the first minute after i can see desktop. The network icon with the blue circle also freezes

I have just done a fresh install, no overclock, no unnecessary things plugged in, my ssd has the latest firmware.

I have also disabled these SERVICES:
Bluetooth Support Service
Diskdefragmenter
Homegroup Listener
Homegroup Provider
windows media player network sharing service

And only have few things on startup:
Realtek HD Audio Manager
HD Audio Background Process
Logitech Gaming Framework (Keyboard & mouse software)
Gamecom Sound (Headset software)
Steam Client
Intel USB 3.0 Monitor
Delayed Launcher (from Intel, but i don't know exactly what it is)
Kaspersky Antivirus

I have windows 7 64-bit installed on a Intel 520 Series 240GB SSD, and have a spare 2TB wd green.

ANY help is much appreciated!!! This issue has been driving me up the wall for a long time!

(forgot to mention i also have tried uninstalling and reinstalling the network adapter, no luck)

It dosen't happen EVERY time, but pretty often)

Did you install software on your new machine that was on your previous machine? if so, installing onto the new machine may have contained a virus.

Download this: www.greatis.net/security/download_reanimator.html

Best AV software on the market, sure to get rid of all nasties in XP,7 and Vista machines.

As for that, I don't know of anymore theories that would do that.

Best of luck smile.gif

to be sure.. somethings bugged and we have to find out what it is.
does your computer behave like this after a fresh windows install?
if not htat would be the point to start with

fresh install, drivers install.. watch what happens.
if it runs good continue to install the programs you use
one by one and see what happens..

if this happens already with a fresh windows install it may be more hardware
or driver related..

This can happen after a FRESH install of windows, and would happen on my last build which was a complete different machine! It doesn't happen every time but it DOES happen. I have Kaspersky Internet Security, CCleaner, no torrents, etc. a clean pc.

Its a mystery!

did you use the same windows cd on your last build too? some scratches there maybe?

any components carried over like RAM? sounds like a prob. I had when overclocking my RAM from 1600 to 1866 without correcting the timings... also, are you using same brand of board/lan card? maybe run down to thrift store and grab a $5 lan pci card and see that is the hang up, if not, maybe router? (if windows creates static IP's for new builds, the router could confuse it with another PC but should give you some kind of IP conflict error without freezes)

just shot in dark- disable steam automatic login at startup. I run a wireless card and it wouldn't load before steam, making me have to reconnect. I disabled it because it automatically opens steam for you when you double-click any of your games anyway.

BTW- not sure still valid now-a-days or if it was just a unique problem I ran into... but my HP TX1000 series laptop requires me to load the drivers in a certain order for it to work properly... I had to go Mobo/Chipsets->Graphics(included Nvidia network controller)->thumbprint scanner->everything else. if I let windows install generic drivers for anything then the HP drivers I downloaded would not work, and wouldn't give any errors when I loaded them (some don't even tell you they finished installing)

    Completely uninstall Kaspersky Internet Security and see if the hanging persists.

Try reducing the start up applications, to the utmost necessary ones. Disabling Steam, for instance. And, did you disable/enable any windows features or toggle with the registry?
