I would first do a clean boot and see if the problem clears up.
If it clears up then you can re-enable the services one at a time to try and figure which one is causing your problem. I've also had virus programs cause these kinds of freeze ups. I've had it happen with MSE though it seems that problem got fixed several updates ago. Sometimes the only way to be certain is to uninstall the virus program and see if the problem clears up. If it does, you may need to try a different virus program. I've traced many problems including freeze ups to virus programs.
