    Windows 7 broke my PC. I was using XP until System32 because corrupt somehow. Anyways I got new internal hard drives and installed Windows 7 on it. After about a day or two of use and installing programs (anti-virus such as telus home security and Advanced System Care 5, Steam, Chrome, y'know just regular programs) it keeps crashing. Steam rarely opens, and when it does it crashes within 5 minutes.
    When I try and go through my files to delete shit, it crashes (says Not Responding). When stuff crashes I press repair or wait for it to fix itself and then nothing happens, and when I try and turn it off it never shuts off.
    Any help?

    What programs did you use to test?

    For the hard drive, use your hard drives manufacturer's diagnostic software.
    For the memory, use Memtest86+ (Not Memtest86) and leave it running for several hours.

    Telus has software that never works breaks your shit or fails entirely. You don't ever need a program like "Advanced System Care" it does basically nothing and windows 7 has alot of that stuff built-in.

    I agree, my verdict is do a format of Windows 7 and just don't install the highlighted stuff. I'm not sure if it will work for you but try going into CMD as admin and entering "SFC /Scannow". It will scan your system to make sure all files are intact and replace the faulty ones.

    He used "Advanced System Care 5" so pretty much ignore the results posted.

    I deleted the Telus and ASC5. I did the Hard drive test with the manufacturer's stock program. And how do I make Memtest86+ work? I downloaded the .zip file and tried to open every file and none open at all. What do?

    Download the ISO, burn it to a CD, insert it in the computer, restart computer.
