If I've understood this Forum correctly, we don't support use of torrents. Sorry. You get out of that mess, do a proper scan for any malware and viruses, and if you still have trouble, please feel free to get in contact.

Thanks for your thanks. :)

Freezing after a certain time could be caused by such a simple issue as heat. Especially if it happens playing a game, or running some heavier software. When was the last time you gave your computer a proper Housewife vacuum cleaner treatment?

Or checked that your fans are really rolling?

But since you have this mention of bit torrent, I would suspect an infection. And those baddies don't go out through a re-installation of Windows. The only true way is to zero format your HDD, then partition it and install Windows. --- That's what I would do, and that's what I've done a few times, having been attacked by hackers [who didn't like my opinions or my way to express them].

Free Partition Manager - AOMEI Partition Assistant Home is an option for a tool. There are others too.
