Hi Michelle are you still there?
Expert:  Michelle replied 1 year ago.

Try to run windows with minimum software's running at the background so that we can identify which software is causing the problem.

Try to run windows updates as well.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I have run Win update
On startup the only thing I have running is Trend Micro, that I am aware of anyway!
Expert:  Michelle replied 1 year ago.

Try to disable trend micro or you my remove it for the time being and install windows defender and then we can observe and see if its still freezing.

Sorry? I stopped Trend when you said at 8.30 'disable Trend'. So I did. It's been disabled for 5 mins.
I asked you 'do you want me to restart my pc?' And the answer is????
Expert:  Michelle replied 1 year ago.

not a problem go a head. Check after restart if TM is still disable or its active after reboot.

Expert:  Michelle replied 1 year ago.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Hi I'm back and Trend is NOT running.
Expert:  Michelle replied 1 year ago.

Alright and how is the computer working now has it been 10 mins or so?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Well its been 5 mins and its working. It doesn't freeze on reboot, only initial boot
Expert:  Michelle replied 1 year ago.

we will wait for another 10 mins just to make sure its the TM.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I have also restarted Trend and am doing Scan for Viruses and no problems.
So as I said it only happens on initial boot, not reboot's.
Expert:  Michelle replied 1 year ago.

can you tell me you had windows 7 32bit or 64bit earlier and what windows 10 you have right now. Its quite possible that TM was on 32 bit windows and now it must be on 64bit windows 10 which can be the reason it freezes windows 10.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
32 bit
Do you want to connect and check the PC yourself? I have Team Viewer 11 on my PC
