Hello Joe,

As a result, the screenshots you posted won't be of much help.
The freeze lasted about 20 mts. I got the snipping tool going twice during the freeze (on both occassions, after labouring for about 3 mts. and numerous mouse clickings). This is quite typical. As I mentioned in my first post, some activity is still possible but it takes an awfully long time. The snips are real time, taken actually during the freeze.

I noticed that svchost.exe was furiously active and that is what made me high light that on the snips. I got furiously active myself , with the snipping tool, to grab this during the freeze. Before and after the freeze, svchost.exe is not seen in Task manager. Even as I write this it is still missing!

Last evening too, I observed this identical activity of svchost.exe, only during the freeze, but I wanted to spend some time observing what is going on, before I posted here.

You can drag the column as explained below to make sure it's in fact the CPU column.
I did, and it is the CPU.

The rest of your help is gratefully noted.
