    hard to say if its hardware or software at this point. downlaod your hdd makers diag software and test the drive, see if anything comes up. I would have a back up plan for your data at this point. Buying a new hdd would be a good idea because you could do a fresh load of windows and see if it still freezes

    Do you have a SD card reader in your PC? If so is there a SD card in the slot? How about a USB flash drive connected?
