Windows 7: Programs randomly hang indefinitely. Cannot be shut down at all.

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit
 
 

Ok. I followed the steps for a clean reinstall EXACTLY, and I included the step of running the Diskpart clean command. The entire drive has been completely reformatted and a clean copy of the correct Windows OS installed from the link provided in the instructions.

I booted up the computer, opened Explorer, and clicked on the CD/DVD RW drive (a known culprit of causing problems on my system) and... sure enough... Explorer locked up. I checked Event Viewer, and already there have been several events. Here's what I've got in order of occurrence:

Event 1 (seen this one a bunch both before and after reinstalls)
Event filter with query "SELECT * FROM _InstanceModificationEvent WITHIN 60 WHERE TargetInstance ISA "Win32_Processor" AND TargetInstance.LoadPercentage > 99" could not be reactivated in namespace "//./root/CIMV2" because of error 0x80041003. Events cannot be delivered through this filter until the problem is corrected.
Source: WMI
Event ID: 10

Event 2 (never seen this one before most recent reinstall)
The Windows Search Service is starting up and attempting to remove the old search index {Reason: Full Index Reset}.
Source: Search
Event ID: 1008

Event 3 (never seen this one that I can remember)
Windows cannot delete the profile directory C:\Users\Administrator. This error may be caused by files in this directory being used by another program
DETAIL - The directory is not empty.
Source: User Profile Service
Event ID: 1533

Event 4 (seen this one several times both before and after reinstalls)
InitializePrintProvider failed for provider inetpp.dll. This can occur because of system instability or a lack of system resources.
Source: PrintService
Event ID: 512

Have you tried unplugging the CD/DVD drive?
