Windows 7: Steam freezes and eventually crashes when trying to download anything

Steam freezes and eventually crashes when trying to download anything

hi i've had this problem for quite awhile now and i've tried steam support forums and submitted tickets, but they weren't very helpful the problem shows to be persistent
so i've tried the usual troubleshooting (reinstalling, deleting clientregistry.blob, deleting everything but steam.exe and troubleshooted connection issues including firewall), but it still doesn't work.
the issue only occurs when i have something in my library that needs updating (freezes as soon as it starts) or when i try to install anything (freezes when preparing for installation/allocating disk space).
anyone have any ideas on how to fix this?
