Desktop freeze Issue is long time problem on this machine ranging from IE 10, Chromium, FF. The freezes are once per boot basis Usually 5 to 20 sec in duration with a intense disk activity and recover afterwards without any event log entry.
I tried updating .NET framework and wireless driver and disabling NIC but the issue reappears after few days. The issue is reproducible by visiting particular sites like toms-hardware, the-verge, Life-hacker etc (flash version 11.8.800)
