Are you using IE 8/9 or FF?
I'd still like to know what Anti-virus application you're running. You may have an app running in the background that is causing the 'hang'.

Using most recent version of Firefox ;-)

Firewall / Antivirus are Comodo Internet Security v5.0

See if IE hangs while watching a Youtube video.

Also, a bit of info about Comodo and FF on this page Firefox hangs - MozillaZine Knowledge Base

It seems everyone keeps missing one point; the entire computer is compromised whenever a "hang" occurs. It can happen even if I have not run Firefox since I have restarted, and occurs using any program and random intervals. Using any program, watching movies with media players, etc.

I am going with the notion that it occurs from something running in the background since it occurs even when nothing is running.

IFinst27.exe is Trojan/Backdoor.

These are the most dangerous, and most widespread, type of Trojan.
Backdoor Trojans provide the author or ‘master’ of the Trojan with remote ‘administration’ of victim machines. Unlike legitimate remote administration utilities, they install, launch and run invisibly, without the consent or knowledge of the user. Once installed, backdoor Trojans can be instructed to send, receive, execute and delete files, harvest confidential data from the computer, log activity on the computer and more.
If your computer was used for online banking or has credit card information on it, all passwords should be changed immediately to include those used for email, eBay and forums.
You should consider them to be compromised.
They should be changed by using a different computer and not the infected one, if not an attacker may get the new passwords and transaction information.
Banking and credit card institutions should be notified of the possible security breech.
