Windows 7: Periodic System Stuttering (Help narrowing causes down)

Periodic System Stuttering (Help narrowing causes down)

Hello All,

Periodically, with no rhyme or reason my system "stutters", but that I mean it'll 'hang' for a second or two at a time, but there'll be no noticeable spike in CPU usage or in memory that I can see.

I've run all the normal diagnostic tests, upgraded all my firmware, and did a fresh install of windows.

I realize this could be literally a million things, but i'm curious about what's the best way to start narrowing that down.

Please use my advice from this post.
Note the time of such "hung", then check if there are any records in any sections for that particular time.
