Windows 7: Computer keeps freezing...

Malwarebytes' anti-malware is a dedicated malware scan. probably the ones that MSE can't detect. so it's suggested for you to do it just to be sure that your PC is malware-free

IF the repair install can't solve it. the next step would be a clean install.

Clean Install Windows 7

Since you have a Dell one with OEM Windows. you may have to activate your License by phone.

are you getting "program not responding"?

lot of people having trouble with sata/ahci drives on windows 7, 64 bit.

while this isn't a FIX of the problem, I found disabling ahci in bios reduces the freezes. things still freeze when you do something that requires higher privileges (pretty much anything in control panel)

I suspect AHCI reads and operations require system privileges at some level. this is my theory for the issues I had found on my gf's family's computer. the thing that sucks is that it worked fine for 2 months (since xmas) and then became virtually unusable for anything including web browsing.

I did the Clean repair yesterday and everything seems to be back to normal and working fine.

Thanks everyone for you're help.
