This could be just because my computer is quite old now, i think its about 4-5 years. But whenever I'm playing some games, recently a game called apb, and chivalry. They will freeze, and when i alt+tab it seems to fix the freeze, I'm guessing it has something to do with the disk, cause on task manager it will shoot up to 99% during these times. This also happens with multitasking and some installations. I just did a system reset and it did not help my problem at all. I'm hoping someone can help me out, as I'm not very well versed in computers. I've searched for malware using bit defender, and nothing has turned up, scanned my drive and it found no problems, and even tested my graphics card which is working fine. The only thing i can attribute this to is my pc getting old, but maybe someone has some ideas. Thank you for you time :)
here are my specs. The screenshot was taken during the installation of my antivirus

Operating system: Windows 10 64bit
Processor:Intel i7
RAM: 8gb
Graphics card: Nvidia Geforce Gtx650

Were you able to do Step 5 so I can see the chkdsk log?

Also run the following steps:

Step 1:
Download USB Seatools Boot file to your Desktop
1. Uncompress the .zip file
2. Open the USBbootSetup-SeaToolsBootable folder
3. Double click on the SeaToolsBootable_RC_2.1.2.usbBootMaker.exe file
4. Follow the steps to create a Bootable USB

1. Boot from the Seatools USB and Run the program
2. Once it starts it will scan for all drives connected to your computer.
3. Select drive you want to test.
4. Select Short Test if it fails then Stop and go to step 9
5. If it passes then
6. Select the Long Generic Test under the Basic Tests menu
7. When the test is complete you will see the result under Test Status
8. The test will indicate either Pass or Fail.
9. Provide the Results in your reply.

If the computer is UEFI you may need to enable CSM or Legacy mode and Disable SecureBoot if available to boot from the USB correctly.

Step 2:
  1. Download GSmartControl and save it on your Desktop;
  2. Execute gsmartcontrol.exe; Let the install complete and launch the programme.
  3. Identify your drive in the list, and double-click on it to bring up it's window (usually you'll find your drive by it's size or it's brand name);
  4. Go in the Perform Tests tab, then select Extended Self-test in the Test type drop-down list and click on Execute(this test can take a few hours to complete);
  5. Once the test is over, the results will be displayed at the bottom of the window. Please copy and paste these results in your next reply;
  6. Also, go in the Attributes tab and if you have any entries highlighted in red or pink, take a screenshot of the GSmartControl window and attach it in your next reply
Step 3:
Test Memory:

Run memtest86+ version 5.01 for at least 8 passes.
Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool

This may take hours so plan to run it overnight.
Testing takes approximately 1 - 2 hours /GB RAM
Just 1 error is a fail and you can abort testing
Then test 1 RAM module at a time in the same DIMM each for 8 or more passes
When Memtest86+ has completed 8 or more passes take a picture and post an image and upload to your reply
