Windows 7 Freezes Even After Applying Hotfix KB2265716
» This has started in the last 2-3 weeks; sometimes its a few minutes after startup, others after its been up for a while. Sometimes while in changing sites in Internet explorer, others when i've just closed explorer and have nothing running. i have run the windows 7 memory diagnostic which was clean and installed hotfix KB2265716. Freezes are not as frequent, but still happen.
The hotfix KB2265716 is not available for free download and not included in Windows updates yet as Microsoft claims it's not fully tested yet. So if you request and install it please be advised that you do this AT YOUR OWN RISK. "This issue occurs because of heavy group policy use and the presence of SCOM causing a deadlock condition between the Lsass.exe process, the Redirected Drive Buffering Subsystem (Rdbss.sys) driver, and the Winsock kernel." The patch is supposed to be officially included in Windows 7 SP1.
To state it clearly: I recommend updating drivers and installing all Windows updates before applying this patch. If you really want to try it, then I recommend doing a backup of your data before or preparing a system snapshot image.
The exe file runs programs, it is thus one of the most useful types of files, but this also makes it potentially harmful. It can be used as a carrier for viruses(PWS:Win32/Bissldr.A) or other malicious programs. If one clicks on a malicious exe file, over the next several hours or days the computer might become unstable. Often the user does not relate the problem back to the cause and attributes it to other factors, such as the need to defragment or replace a disk. Personal information or password keystrokes might be handed over to an unknown website without knowledge of the user, or the machine might delete its own files and crash altogether. Any of these scenarios and more can be set in motion by simply clicking on a 'bad' exe file.
Sometimes, the installation of a program or a driver can cause an unexpected change to your computer or cause Windows to behave unpredictably. Usually, uninstalling the program or driver corrects the problem. If uninstalling does not fix the problem, you can try restoring your computer's system to an earlier date when everything worked correctly.
For all the .exe and .sys files related problems caused by adware, worms, viruses, Trojan, spyware and malware, such as slow pc, high usage of CPU/memory, system crashes and so on, DLL Suite will be the best solution for you to troubleshoot and remove the exe virus infection automatically.
