    My computer is freezing about 10 seconds after being unlocked or
    restarted. The desktop, bottom bar and start menu all freeze but if i am
    able to open applications before everything freezes i can use them while
    the rest of the computer is still frozen. ctrl+alt+del opens the normal
    page and i can open task manager but that instantly freezes. The login
    page isnt frozen thoug because from the ctrl alt del menu i can change
    users and resart my computer from there but thats it. I dont know whats
    wrong please help!!!!!!!!!!!1

    Hello illskillz,

    You might see if doing a '*_System_Restore_*'
    (http://www.vistax64.com/tutorials/76905-system-restore-how.html) at
    boot using a restore point dated before you had this problem may be able
    to fix it for you.

    Hope this helps,
    Shawn

    Sounds like you may need to do a '*_Custom_install_*
    (http://www.vistax64.com/tutorials/241565-custom-install-vista.html) t
    reisntall Vista. This way all of your current files in your curren
    installation will be place in a "C:\Windows.old" folder so you can cop
    the one you want back after reinstalling. :
