Default Computer randomly freezes at times.

This just started this morning. I de fragged my main hard drive last night if that matters. It doesn't seem to happen when I'm doing anything specific, it could be when Im watching a video or on a website, so I'll have to restart to fix it. Here's my Hijackthis log file,

I ran spybot, nothing came up. Regcure, and a bunch of problems were reported, but it's happened a couple times since fixing them.

And I don't know if maybe this is related at all, but I keep getting this Windows Outlook pop up, saying something about Outlook Express not being my main email thing, but I never use it and I don't know why it keeps popping up.

I suggest you run a full malwarebytes scan and remove any items found.

Also make sure your case has sufficient cooling.

Also cut down on running processes by using msconfig.

I actually tried running a full scan with malwarebytes, but that was one of the times it froze. I just did a quick scan and nothing came up. Ill try to do a full scan in a bit.

Oh and another thing, I seem have problems with google sometimes. Sometimes it'll load the search, but when I click on a result it'll take me to a blank page, and if I refresh it'll take me to a different search engine site. So far I've only noticed any web problems with google.

Did a full malwarebytes scan in safe mode, nothing. And it happened again after I rebooted normally.

Are you sure malwarebytes has been updated?

At this point the most likely cause is BAD ram or a bad power supply.

Google, download, burn to disk and run for least 4 hours, memtest 86+

I actually just did a ram test, I think that exact one. Came back with no errors.

No, it was maybe a little under an hour. I ended it cuz it said the test was complete.

memtest 86+ will run for an indefinite amount of time if you let it.
It has to manually stopped.

Are you sure it was "Memtest 86+"

It needs to be run for a minimum of four hours.
