Work through these Troubleshooting Steps for Windows 7 starting with the RAM and HD tests to clear your hardware.

Then establish a clean boot to assure no other program is interfering while freeloading on startup and resources.

Cull the logs for repeat errors to resolve, utilize System Resources to find solutions.

If your Win7 install varied much from the Best Practices given in Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 then I'd do it over after testing the hardware, wiping the HD with Diskpart Clean Command

Try ImgBurn at 4x speed to burn a DVD, or Universal USB Installer to write to stick with Win7 in dropdown menu.

Be sure to back up your files, then wipe the HD first from installer's Command Line with Diskpart Clean Command.
