My son got a Toshiba laptop for christmas. For the first several months all was fine. Rcently however, The laptop locksup several minutes after booting up.
The lockup lasts for about 20-30 minutes. During the lockup the toshiba desktop meter reads- core1 -100%, Ram [4GB] 50%. We have run Ccleaner, Spybot, super anti spyware, we have cleared internet history and cookies. We have also run Windows 7 home ed update weekly and have Avira antivrus running in the background. Still the computer locksup. If anyone has any idea what course of action to take next, we thank you in advance.

If you believe this may be as a result of contracting an infection then please post a HJT log in the HijackThis Logs- Help with spyware removal forum.

We do not generally help with non-malware type problems.

If you do not believe your problems are as the result of an infection, I recommend you post to one of the forums that give general computer support.

Below are links to some who give that kind of support for Windows 7 ....

http://www.geekstogo.com/forum/forum/79-windows-vista-and-windows-7/
http://www.techsupportforum.com/forums/f217/

.... the quality of help given by those forums is generally of a high standard.
