Fix: Windows 7 freezes randomly when memory usage is high

If when running Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 and you experience system freeze when memory usage is high, then this article may interest you.

Windows Server 2008 R2 or Windows 7 randomly stops responding when the memory usage is high and when the memory manager performs frequent paging in and paging out actions. The Memory\Page Faults/sec performance counter can be used to track the paging in and paging out frequency.

The issue occurs because of a deadlock situation in the Microsoft Filesystem Filter Manager (Fltmgr.sys).

Note: Upgrading the two operating systems to Service Pack 1 will not solve the glitch since, Windows 7 SP1 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 can also experience the problem.

To resolve this issue, visit Microsoft KB2575077, download and apply the available hotfix.
