Might or mightn't work...

about AntiFreeze Jan 2012

I don't know if this works or not but every time I used it when my computer was severly chugging or attempting to crash, AntiFreeze would exceed Windows flaws by Perma-Freeze my entire system. Leaving me with a system either so slow that the cursor would move 3 pixels once every 10 seconds OR like I said "Perma-Freeze". Resulting in me having to do a hard reset.

Maybe it hasn't seen an update and as a result it has become useless and unstable. IMHO, don't bother with AntiFreeze because Windows Task manager is much more useful in most cases.
