I have a Gateway M-285 with C2D 2.13GHz, 4GB ram, Nova Series 2 60GB and W7x64 and at first performance was awesome, however, it fell off and started to freeze randomly while opening some programs. I was about to do an RMA when I decided eh... lets try a defrag.


It worked! It'll take forever the first time but the random freezing and the drive taking forever for stuff goes away. I know you shouldn't have to defrag an SSD but it has made a HUGE difference. When it starts moving slowly and randomly freezing for a few seconds I plug in the laptop and run the defrag again.

My disk was freezing too until I saw on an Avast forum that some people were complaining that Avast had begun freezing their computers. Very similar symptoms to what I was experiencing.


I un-installed Avast and the freezes were gone!!!


Since I'm behind a router I turned on Windows firewall and Defender and now I run virus scans with Avast on my Windows 8 disk ( which was not affected ). It seems something about an update < may > be causing problems with certain processors and operating system combinations.


I have Windows 7 64 bit on my laptop with the same version of Avast and it only has a dual core processor and it was not affected either.


It's possible the update got corrupted or something but for now I don't trust it.


Will soon be moving completely to Windows 8 anyway.


Running the virus scans from Windows 8 on the Windows 7 disk is good anyway because it allows the files to be scanned when they aren't in use. Like using the Rescue Disk to do your virus scans in it's operating system similar also to a boot time scan.


If you are using Avast ver 7 you might try un-installling ( you can always re-install ) and see if it helps.
