Windows 7: Windows 7 hangs up randomly

Windows 7 64 bit
Windows 7 hangs up randomly

I just bought a Dell Studio 1749 with Windows 7 64 bit. Randomly a program will lock up. After about 30 seconds or so the program will say it is not responding. If i right click on the program the whole program will turn a transparent white. This happens with many programs including IE, Firefox, and Windows Explorer. I contacted Dell and they did some simple maintenance but that didnt fix anything. I re-installed windows 2 times but it still didnt fix the problem. After all of this dell sent a technician to swap out hard drives. That still didnt fix the problem. It seems that if I have the battery plan on performance it helps but doesnt solve the problem. Any help would be appreciated.
