Download and install Everest 2.20

Double-click on the Everest icon on your Desktop, or allow to run after installation.
You will notice some new colored squares down in the right-hand portion of your Task Bar, in the notification area near your clock/calendar
These will be temperature readings.

in the Everest 2.20 panel, Navigate to - Computer - Sensors
Create a Quick Report in Plain Text

Include the Quick Report - Sensors in your next reply.

follow the recommendations in your PCPitstop OverDrive Full Tests - Results - Software - Processes
You can disable all of the items listed in the top section with yellow/orange background.
You can disable all of the items listen in the middle section with light blue background - user option.
Leave all the items listed in the bottom section with green background since these items are required.

The kind of problem that you describe, of the machine locking up after a period of use can often be attributed to:

excess items running in background.

There may be other problems, but please perform the above and post the results in your next reply
Run a fresh instance of PCPitstop OverDrive Full Tests and post a new link to Results, after you have disabled as many items as you select per above.

Best Regards

Here are the reports. I couldn't find a few of the processes to disable. This thing is now locking up at random times and sometimes will give an error that it cannot load profile on startup that it is corrupt. I then restart it again and its fine until it locks up. I hope the disk isnt crappin out. Thanks
