I am having some issues with Windows 7. After getting past my installation HDD detection issue, I have now encountered a screen freezing issue. I have hardly any software at all installed on my computer as I have just loaded Windows 7 so I am hoping that there shouldn't be too many programs that are causing conflicts.
What is happening is when I am using my computer normally it will randomly just lock up, I can't move the mouse or start task manager, the system is just useless. So I have to force fully power down. This has only happened once to me but I have also encountered this issue with the RC when it was installed.
One thing I have found out is when it did lock, I opened up the event viewer and found out at about the time it locked this error was logged.
The Windows Search service failed to start due to the following error:
The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion.
Now I am assuming that is the service that gets activated when you hit start then start to type. I wasn't using that at the time though.
If anyone has any suggestions or solutions to my issue it would be much appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
