This started happening a couple weeks ago, and I don't know what could be the
problem , suddenly one day ( It was set to stand by every hour) When I come
back, and resume from stand by, I see that it takes a while longer to get
the monitor on, and, finally when the screen appears, everything is frozen!
so I had to do a hard shutdown (at first I waited about 10 minutes) and I
restarted and tried it again, and the same thing happened. It has been
happening since then and I donâ€™t know what could be wrong. I know it's not
spyware or a virus, since I have nod32 updated to the most recent virus
signature, and zone alarm security suite (recently updated to the new version
, I donâ€™t know if it has nothing to do with it). The program that I think
might of messed up is perfectdisk, I had recently downloaded a free trial
because I was seeing a performance break and I saw that my hard disk was
really fragmented, especially the system files which windows defrag doesn't
work on. so I did the "smartplacement" with all files including system files
(offline defrag) and the computer just got slower, and I wasnâ€™t happy to see
that my MFT zone had been messed up, leaving no space reserved, and the Sims
2 continuous with the MFT, as well as a slideshow I had opened that day
(found this out later using o&o) I think it has to with that, but Iâ€™m not
sure, although they did happen at very close times (offline defrag and
standby freeze problem). looking in the system event viewer, all i could see
at that time ,was: the following boot time drivers have failed to load:
MPFIREWL and PARTIZAN, which after doing research was left even more clueless
than before. I hope someone can help me , I would be very thankful!
PS. sorry if it was too long and boring, I have spent hours on trying to fix
this, and I am a little sleepless!
Again thank you for your help!
