  1. Run an antivirus scan with malwarebytes.

    Make sure everything is up to date, whether it's Windows, the BIOS, or graphics & chipset drivers.

    Run a Check Disk to see if any of your drives files are corrupted: http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/windows-vista/guide-to-using-check-disk-in-windows-vista/

    did all of that but i don't know what do you mean by chipset drivers ?
    i have a 6700k , i went to their download page : http://ark.intel.com/products/88195/Intel-Core-i7-6700K-Processor-8M-Cache-up-to-4_20-GHz#@downloads

    there are so many stuff , which one should i download ? and how to check if its already updated or not

    also computer virus scan by kaspersky and check disk found nothing
  3. i think it's a windows 10 issue , i have the same issue , maybe if you use the old media player instead of the new groove you can resolve that issue

    The chipset drivers are in the downloads section of your motherboard's manufacturers website. Not the CPUs.
  6. so i updated everything , still this happens

    also maybe this helps : when ever i open chrome and go to a page , and then spam open like 10 same page , cpu usage goes very high (around 80 - 90 %) and then this happens again, my mouse keeps freezing

    considering i have a 6700K which has a 30degree temp and a samsung 950 SSD , you think this should happen ? if not then is it my CPU ?
    should i download anything from my cpu website ?
