    Newly upgraded computer has constant freezing unless running a game.


      I have a recently upgraded computer that freezes within 15-25 seconds of opening windows 10 no matter what I do unless I instantly launch and keep a certain game running (Europa Universalis 4)

      My Windows is fully updated and so are my drivers.

      This is my system specs

      Machine   Gigabyte Technology Co., Ltd. - Z370P D3
          Operation System   Microsoft Windows 10 Home (64-bit)
          Memory   8 GB
          Processor   Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-8600K CPU @ 3.60GHz
          Motherboard   Gigabyte Technology Co., Ltd. - Z370P D3-CF
          Video Cards   AMD Radeon HD 6670
          Monitors   SHARP HDMI
          Hard Disk   Samsung SSD 840 EVO 250GB (250.0 GB)
          Network Card   Microsoft Teredo Tunneling Adapter



      I Have done all the simple fixes you find online such as running troubleshooters and ETC.

      When I run the game my computer runs completely fine and I played for 4.5 hours on it earlier today without any crashes or lag, but when I exit out and my computer freezes up almost immedietly.
