Do you see any errors in Device Manager?

Do you have any spare parts to swap in to see if the problems then disappear?

If nothing else, run sfc /scannow from an elevated command prompt to see if it finds any errors.
He's got a laptop, thus part swapping is a difficult option.

Sure am glad that with your wealth of experience you know immediately more than someone who has done this for more years than you are old.

And it was going so well up to this point. Chill dude, I was just saying I hadn't had any problems with the 2 gigs I've had for a year now. I'm sure you know more than anyone here about computers.

No error message, it just freezes for a couple minutes, and then resumes as if nothing happened. It will do it again at random intervals. I've ran scannow a few times, never finds any problems though.

Uninstall:
Code:
Advanced SystemCare 5    IObit    3/19/2012        5.2.0
Bonjour    Apple Inc.    10/5/2010    1.78 MB    2.0.3.0
DAEMON Tools Lite    DT Soft Ltd            4.40.2.0131

µTorrent                2.0.4
you have both Eset and Norton. I consider Eset to be the better of the two, but if you prefer norton then uninstall Eset. Two av programs are not better than one but rather cause problems, slow performance and even mouse hangs.

REMOVAL OF P2P PROGRAMS

There are signs of one or more P2P (Peer to Peer) File Sharing Programs on your computer.

As long as you are using any form of P2P networking to download files, you can anticipate malware infestations.

References citing the risk of using P2P programs:

Malware: Help prevent the Infection
Perils of P2P File Sharing
How to Prevent the Online Invasion of Spyware and Adware

I strongly recommend that you uninstall:
µTorrent

========================================
Please uninstall the programs I've listed until your problem is solved.

Weird, never noticed Norton on there. I'm guessing it came with the computer as I never installed it myself. I prefer Eset as well so I will leave that and uninstall Norton. It's hard to tell if any of these steps are working as I can't reproduce the problem on demand. If these steps work:

WIN | type MSCONFIG | STARTUP tab | ENTER
uncheck ALL except for:
Code:
egui "C:\Program Files\ESET\ESET Smart Security\egui.exe" /hide /waitservice
SynTPEnh %ProgramFiles%\Synaptics\SynTP\SynTPEnh.exe
REBOOT!


Go back to the task scheduler and
DISABLE ALL

What does that mean then? Do I need to uninstall something in particular?

Alright, anyone here who doesn't take a totally innocent statement as a personal insult want to help from here?
