Windows 7: Computer randomly Freezing (not sure of the problem yet)

Computer randomly Freezing (not sure of the problem yet)

So about a 3 month ago my computer started to freeze 3 - 10 times a day, at first i thought the problem was GoogleChrome, because out of coincidence it would freeze when i was watching a video. i was looking at 100's of forums for some kind of solution but nothing helped
i recently checked event view after 3 simultaneous crashes and the little error icon showed next to it Bonjour (an apple software), i proceeded to uninstall all of the apple related software on my computer and it obviously didn't help. so the only way i think that i can fix my issue is by getting some help from a community

my computer recently freezed so i checked event view and on the time it freezed i got 3 errors and 1 warning

Error 1: A duplicate name has been detected on the TCP network. The IP address of the computer that sent the message is in the data. Use nbtstat -n in a command window to see which name is in the Conflict state.
Error 2: A duplicate name has been detected on the TCP network. The IP address of the computer that sent the message is in the data. Use nbtstat -n in a command window to see which name is in the Conflict state.
Warning 1: A request has been submitted to promote the computer to backup when it is already a master browser.
Error 3: A timeout was reached (30000 milliseconds) while waiting for the Windows Error Reporting Service service to connect.

I will post any updates if i find any other information
Thanks for any help in advance :)
