Windows 7: Laptop freezing every time I confirm/cancel something that is a pop-up

Laptop freezing every time I confirm/cancel something that is a pop-up

Every single time I get a pop-up (including a pop-up about allowing a trusted program like Malwarebytes) to run after it is confirmed my laptop just freezes... no amount of waiting fixes it.

I am using Avast free and PrivateFirewall 7.0, neither of which have said anything since this started happening.

So my assumption is that it is not a virus but most of the time I can't even run them as the prompt to allow admin settings freezes the laptop completely. It seems to be ONLY when there's a pop-up, otherwise it's fine.

I'd change to the Windows 7 Firewall and Microsoft Security Essentials to see if it helps. We do see issues with Avast and 3rd party firewalls are trouble and not normally needed since Windows 7 firewall is perfected.
