FIX: Computer randomly freezes in Windows 10
You might have encountered a random restart on Windows 10 once or twice, but it seems that some users experience random freezing on Windows 10.
Random freezing can cause as many problems as a random restart, so let’s see how we can fix this problem.
1.Delete problematic software
In some cases, certain software can cause random freezing in Windows 10. Users have reported that software such as speccy, Acronis True Image, PrivateFireWall, McAfee and Office Hub App can cause problems with Windows 10.

- Open the application section & features and delete the application mentioned above
- After you delete the installation of this application, restart your computer.

One of the best in the market today is the IObit Uninstaller 10 Pro, and it will delete your pc clean from troubled software trail.
More than that, it can also get rid of browser extensions, default tools, alias bloatware, and UWP Store applications too.
After that, restart your PC and see if the mechanic still occurs, even though it is very impossible.
