• Windows 7 broke my shit.

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 are your system specs?
Do a memory and hard drive test.
My specs are Operating System MS Windows 7 Enterprise 32-bit CPU AMD Athlon 64 X2 5200+ 41 °C Windsor 90nm Technology RAM 2.00 GB Dual-Channel DDR2 @ 373MHz (5-6-6-18) Motherboard Gigabyte Technology Co., Ltd.

It said there are no problems with my PC.
[QUOTE=killover;35486961]I just did a harddrive/memory test. It said there are no problems with my PC.[/QUOTE] 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.
Get rid of the following hi-lighted shit: [QUOTE=killover;35479460]Windows 7 broke my PC. I was using XP until System32 because corrupt somehow.

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'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.

Windows 7 doesn't break your shit, your shit breaks windows 7
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?

It hasn't crashed for like a week, since I deleted the shit. Thanks guys!
