Windows 7: Taskbar and programs go unresponsive!

Taskbar and programs go unresponsive!

Hey Everyone,

So a few days ago randomly my computer sort of froze and I was on teamspeak at the time. After that, on teamspeak I was continuously transmitting (I use a push to talk button on my mouse which totally cancelled out).

So I restarted my computer thinking it was just a bug. Same happened, except when I boot now My task bar down the bottom is completely unresponsive, I can't click on it or do anything. The only way it becomes responsive is if I Cntrl + alt + delete and then click cancel.

Then after a little while (It's always random) every program will seem as if it's frozen up apart from the program I currently have on top (I use two monitors and i can't click on anything except the program I'm on, ranging from a game to my documents.

Now to what I have done//tested.. I truly am stuck for ideas.
I've Reinstalled Teamspeak (I thought that was the original problem)
Virus scanned with 3 different programs, Nothing showed up.
De-fragged my HDD
Re-installed windows (Fresh on my SSD)
Unplugged my hard drive (incase it was a problem on that)
Tried a different mouse
Done a Memtest to see if it was my ram or something, it wasn't.

I'm open for idea's as this problem is driving me insane >.<
