Hi CU and welcome

We can find the cause by typing eventvwr in search. Go to the windows logs>application tab. Look fir errors (they have red in the left hand column) that say app hang, app crash, etc there is a lot of data so you might want to wait till the next time it happens. when you find them use the snipping tool (type snipping in search) to make a screen shot. Then attach the screen shot using the attachment icon(shaped like a paperclip) in the reply form. See Pics

Also Note the event ID and source.

Let us know if you need help
