Windows 7: After 6 hours, the PC just hangs and I have to hard reset

After 6 hours, the PC just hangs and I have to hard reset

This happened EVERY DAY. I have my PC set to turn off automatically at 1 AM. If I leave it on all day then the next morning I'll come to it and it'll just have the desktop there and none of the icons or ctrl alt del or even pressing the power button will work. I have to hard reset. It's screwing up my drives!

Now, I have a lot of money riding on the stuff on my storage drives and this is really messing me up. I am thinking I need to build a whole new system because the stuff on my drives is not anything to mess around with. I have them all backed up on several clouds and NASes just in case. I don't have a crash report or BSOD to report.

I did have problems with blue screening a few months ago but that since stopped. Should I just build a new system?

These are the contents of the ZIP file - still not enough information

Attachment 352624

Run it as administrator, be patient whilst it finished and check the contents of the ZIP files on your desktop.

I just ran it as admin, and I waited for the little message to pop up saying it's ready to upload to the forum. And this is what I have. I'm really sorry for bothering you with all this. I hope I'm not frustrating anyone. But this is doubly frustrating for me because I have a sneaking suspicion that my primary SSD is dying which is not good.
