Computer w new Windows 7 pro install freezes several times a day. Seems to happen when when using internet explorer. After hard shutdown, on restart, works fine for an hour or so, then freezes again.  Each time event viewer says:

"Event 7001, Service Control Manager"
"The Computer Browser service depends on the Server service which failed to start because of the following error:
The dependency service or group failed to start "

Details Tab says:
- <Event xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/win/2004/08/events/event">
- <System>
  <Provider Name="Service Control Manager" Guid="{555908d1-a6d7-4695-8e1e-26931d2012f4}" EventSourceName="Service Control Manager" />

I really need help with this. Until today did not even know I had a Service Control Manager. Hope I have at least selected the correct tags? Thanks. Olivia

No relief from either of these recs, but I understand a lot more about service manager. Are there more files that could help? From subsequent crashes I am begininning to think I have an AVG anti virus problem or a memory problem, so maybe I should close this out with thanks and post elsewhere?

oliviajones--Have you told us the version of IE?  If IE9 and you installed over IE8 you could try uninstalling IE 9.  That will automatically revert you to IE8.

If no help, certainly disable or uninstall AVG to determine if that is the problem.
And run Chkdsk.

If no help,
