I've been running Windows 8.1 for awhile now without any issues. This past week or so, though, I've been returning to my computer after being away for awhile to find that it's locked up.
I can move the mouse around and I can see apps that I had open, but the cursor is showing the "wait/spinner" icon, I can't click on anything, I can't do ctrl+alt+delete, and no matter how long I seem to wait it never kicks back in for me. The only way to get going again is to hit the reset button on the computer, which I hate doing, of course.
I have no idea what application, or what in general, is causing this. Is there a way that I can check Windows logs or something to see what's getting hung up when that happens?
Any information on this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
