Re: Freezing problems!
So do you only see this issue when opening, closing or saving files on the local hard drive ?
I can use Firefox just fine, but if I want to add an attachment to an email, or download a file... it will just blackout a bit and freeze up, then very
soon after the whole computer freezes.
Same for trying to open LibreOffice files.
Does it happen in Nautilus file browser ?
Can you identify this as a trigger for the freezing ?
Can you get to a console and restart the session by pressing these keys at the same time..
..loging into the console and typing
Have you verified the filing system using a LiveCD/USB ?
sudo service lightdm restart
Have you run a SMART on the hard drive ?
Is there anything in the log files ?
If you disable the anti virus daemon for a while, does it still freeze ?
It could be a whole number of things causing this and at the moment, it's kind of stabbing in the dark without further clues.
