My PC freezes up after Upgrading to Windows 7 ultimate

Hello, 

I recently upgraded my Windows 7 RC to Windows 7 ultimate.

It was fine for a few days but then my PC would keep on freezing up.

I decided to do a system restore but it gives me 'Result: Failed. Error code = 0x1f' Why is this happening?

Any suggestions?

Thanks.
