    New guy..

    Hi i have a G74Sx-BBK8 for about a month now, and sometimes just freeze (but i think my AV(kaspersky pure) is causing it).

    Also i saw that you need to uninstall the ASUS update, is that the same as the ASUS live update?
    And would someone tell me the things that i need to uninstall that might be causing my laptop to freeze/slow.

    And also what's the best program to test the 3D mark etc.
    Also i want to do a clean reinstall, bestbuy put some useless application....but i'm not really expert on doing a reinstall on a laptop, i've done a recovery 2x already tho.

    Welcome to the Asus forums!

    If you think it's your antivirus (it shouldn't be causing your system to freeze) you can always uninstall it and install a free antivirus like Microsoft Security Essentials.

    You don't need to uninstall Asus Update/LiveUpdate, but it is recommended by many on this forum. From my experience, it's fairly useless.

    It depends on what kind of testing you want to run. If you're looking for a benchmark, Futuremark's 3DMark program is one of the most commonly used. If you want to run a heat/stress test of your GPU, I would recommend FurMark.

    It doesn't have a 3D display....but you can output to an appropriate external monitor. (At least you can on the non-BB models....I can't say 100% that option exists on yours.)

    well yea i think so cuz BBK8 native resolution is only 16x90, and yes i have a 23 inch Hp w2338h monitor using HDMI, you think it will work for 3D? i have the option here on my laptop "Enable 3D vision" and "Disable 3D vision".
