This was the worst decision I ever made buying a PB...they really suck, its confirmed my suspicions. Every ten seconds or so my PC freezes for about a second and repeats this process ad infinitum. What can I do to correct this other than smash it to bits with a lump hammer and mail it to customer support?

After looking at this lot, courtesy of Google, I think your Lump Hammer idea is probably the best bet ...

How old is the computer? If it`s still under warranty the retailer may take a look at it and then restore it to factory settings - an exercise you can do yourself, but make sure you`ve backed up your data first!

It could be that a component has failed but you`d need a technician to diagnose this for you. It could be anything. HDD, faulty or insufficient RAM, Graphics etc. It may just be a corrupt driver.

I would try the restore to factory settings option and see if the problem persists.
