If you want to install Windows,then you should download the OS from internet. I can give you a few web-addresses for it(the file size is about 4-5GB) if you decide to reinstall windows.

Then you'll have to use a software called "Power ISO".

Before moving to the next step,you must know,that it's necessary to have an USB flash or CD/DVD drive to move the windows files on it(unfortunately there's no way of installing Windows 7 from D hard drive,only newer windows OS-es can be installed that way)

Then you have to format your flash/CD drive
And after that ,with Power Iso you can easily move windows files from computer to the drive.
When all these steps are successfully followed,an usual flash drive will turn into a bootable drive that's ready for installation...
Ah, well I think I'll have to hold that then...
I'd think I'd need to get a new HDD before I install a new OS, because as I've said above, I really don't want to format my drive as there is about 300 GB worth of all my projects.

Well, I've tried the SlimDrives updates, and It kinda suppressed the freeze times just a bit as from now...
But yeah, that's about it...

Any more suggestions I should do?
(anything that doesn't require a full wipe of HDD and/or replacing CPU)

Thanks for taking your time to help by the way.

You can move your data on another drive( D disc), the C disc should be formatted if you want the new installed OS not to get messed with the old windows files.During the installation process,you'll be able to choose which drive to format. Just move your data to D disc and format C,let the system files be written on C and your files will be kept on D without any risks of losing them.

Let's see if the system keeps getting frozen ,even after using SlimDrivers,if it does,then we'll think of something else,there's no tasks that can't be accomplished

Ah, well the freezes still happen by the way...
And like I keep saying, I'll do anything that doesn't require a full wipe or changing the CPU.
I'll be changing the OS once I get enough money to buy another HDD...
So, what will be the next thing I should try to do?

Anyways, here's the vid that shows how the freezes just randomly happens... (Sorry for crap camera quality tho)

(Tho the vid only shows how it does it, too bad it doesn't really help, but here you go anyway...)

So, I tried this "Sensor View" program and ran it as someone suggested to check my temperatures, and most were at around 30-45 degrees (Celsius) but as we kept checking, a sudden "not responding" happened and when it got back to normal, the HDD usage bar spiked up from 0% to 100%
Is that normal whenever something becomes "not responding"?

(I also edited/added this in the main thread just to inform...)
