Random System freezing

So this weekend ive been getting random system freezings like i will be on chrome or firefox and about to change th URL to youtube or something and then the browser stops working, go to desktop manager, stops working too, eventually nothing responds and i cant click on anything.
This happened this morning as well, im worried because i dont know what is causing it.
ive virus checked like 5 times, done a mem scan, hard drive scan, cpu seems to be working fine..
any ideas as to what is causing this?

Go to event viewer and look for errors
Go to device manager make sure that all drivers are up to date and no warning markers are present
Oveheating?
Test with malwarbytes. Download and update, then run a full scan
