    System becomes unresponsive, forcing me to restart

    The apps helped me remove/disable Cortana, the Xbox app, and a couple of others I cannot name now, prevented Microsoft from randomly changing settings on my PC, as I heard they sometimes do in order to experiment, and stopped Windows from forcing me to update when it wants to, letting me choose...

    System becomes unresponsive, forcing me to restart

    Of course, but first I'd like to make sure as to what exactly this command would do, as internet sources give only a shallow explanation in my opinion. From my understanding, the command will try to find and fix errors on the disk, but also that it will "lock" the drive being checked - what...

    System becomes unresponsive, forcing me to restart

    Alright, here is the log file! I noticed that some of it generated in Polish, since it's my system language. I can't do much about that, I think, so if any particular line seems important and Google translate won't handle it, I'll be able to help. (a link leading to the text file on Google...

    System becomes unresponsive, forcing me to restart

    Hi! The issue I described occured again last sunday and a couple of days prior to it. One of those occurrences happened immediately after booting up my PC - it was very slow to load, so slow in fact that my monitor had enough time to go into sleep mode between the loading of Windows and...

    System becomes unresponsive, forcing me to restart

    Well, the nature of my issue forces me to wait for results. I understand that leaving this thread open yet inactive for long might not be desirable, so I think that it may be closed. If my issue persists, I'll simply create a new thread and link to this one.

    System becomes unresponsive, forcing me to restart

    Hi, I uninstalled Java, only one version appeared in the control panel but I'm pretty sure it's gone. I checked the PSU model, it's Corsair VS550: https://www.corsair.com/eu/en/Categories/Products/Power-Supply-Units/vs-series-config-2018/p/CP-9020171-EU As for checking whether uninstalling...

    System becomes unresponsive, forcing me to restart

    Hello! Thanks for your reply, here is the link to the Speccy snapshot: http://speccy.piriform.com/results/HFX0UB6XaiGrMYLzfiwkJz8 some of the entries are written in Polish which I doubt I can really do anything about, so if there's any particular one you need that translating tools don't work...

    System becomes unresponsive, forcing me to restart

    Hi! I've been having a very strange issue for the past month or so, namely that seemingly randomly my PC will become 'unresponsive', I will describe the first time I noticed it in hopes of providing enough information. At first I noticed that new browser tabs won't load despite my internet...

    Solved suspicious new sound when powering down the PC

    Very well, the point of the thread was to find out whether the sound is something to be immediately alarmed by or not, but it seems to not be an established sign of an error

    Solved suspicious new sound when powering down the PC

    Alright, since the drives seem to be doing just fine and my sound not appearing on that website then at least I can count out the possibility of faulty HDDs! I don't know how that explains the weird change in how the PC shuts down, but at least it doesn't mean I'll lose my data.

    Solved suspicious new sound when powering down the PC

    Hi, For the past couple of days I've noticed a new strange behaviour when shutting down my PC. For context, I've recently bought a second HDD and installed it inside of the case, I have also performed a system format, the issue didn't appear until after Windows reinstallation, though I cannot...
