Windows 7: Lock ups, studders and other annoying bugs on my 3 year old PC

Windows 7 Professional 32 Bit
Lock ups, studders and other annoying bugs on my 3 year old PC

So Windows seems to be very unresponsive, slow, and buggy on my computer I've had for about 3 years now. It's done this the entire time I've had but I was too lazy to ask anyone to help me with this problem. Since school has started it's really pissing me off when I'm trying to get homework done.
Anyway, it has a very slow start up process, and during this the taskbar doesn't respond nor does the desktop and other things.
Then at random intervals it does exactly this (that isn't my video though). This also happens when I play a game, it just completely stops (and sometimes the sound repeats itself over and over again) and I have to wait until it becomes responsive again.
Now this is a problem I've had recently: It doesn't completely shutdown either. When I hit the shut down button and go to bed, I'll wake up in the morning and it still has the blue "Shutting down..." screen. So I have to forcefully shut it down by holding down the power button for 3 seconds.

I'm not sure if this is a hardware issue or just Windows but it is super annoying (really).
