Install Service Pack 1:Service Pack 1 has provided many security and stability updates for Windows 7, which would be highly beneficial for your system.

There's quite a few of these errors in your Event Log, are you reading from a CD/DVD when the computer freezes? Have you tried disconnecting the CD/DVD drive from the motherboard and PSU?
I had nothing in my CD/DVD drive when it froze its usually on idle or using Chrome.
But its interesting as that i never thought that CD/DVD would have a problem.
Im going to try that latter for a day or two to see what happens.

Im hoping this was the root cause so then this problem will never bother me.

Welcome, and disconnect the CD/DVD drive first, and then use the computer as you normally would for a few days.

I seem to be cursed or something since it crashed just a few minutes ago but the whole computer froze and hard to hard reset, no sound and all.
Here are the logs.
I imagine this is a rare occurrence

Was the CD/DVD drive disconnected when this happened?

There's quite a few failed Windows Updates, and services failing to start.
