System Interrups Go Up, Win 7 crashes.
The "System Interrupts" category in MS Resource Manager start to spike and the OS shuts down. I took the computer into the Geeks they say no harware issues but did detect a virus. They removed the virus, did an OS repair and gave the computer back. Two days after I got it back the Systems Interrupts spiked an Windows crashed. Windows re-started and no problem. "SIs" are running normal. Help?
Well here's the latest. It seems that the problem is under control (knock on wood). I'm not sure why though. Last week I had a couple of days when I didn't start the computer. The day after a day off went with no problems. Then this weekend I turned the computer on on consecutive days and the interrupts are under control.
The only possible explanation is the update I installed from MS. One day last week I was prompted to download and install Windows service pack 1 for x64 based systems. I'd swear I had the interrupts issue after doing so, at least once, but... In any case it ain't happening now.
When was service pack 1 issued? If it was a while ago, how come I didn't get the download prompt before??? This is enough to give me gray hair. Okay more gray hair.
Is this a good question?
