Windows 7: System Hesitation Windows7 Photoshop always later in the day

System Hesitation Windows7 Photoshop always later in the day

Hi guys.

My windows7 machine is hesitating/freezing every time I used Photoshop cs6 or any large memory usage program. It's hard to pin down but this freezing occurs randomly but seems to increase after I boot up photoshop to the point where I have to ctrl-alt-delete and kill photoshop from the resource manager. I've reinstalled the program multiple times and and the same thing happens eventually.

At the start of the day. Things run fine but as the day wears on the computer runs really hesitantly more and more. Could this be a heat issue? Or a drive issue heating up? I hear noises coming from the computer case. Not clicking noises but general hard drive noises of access and twirling or motion. Could this be a sign that my boot up drive is going? I've run checkdisk and defrag and have found no errors. Should I run longer checks?

What reporting tools can I use to give myself a better idea of what might be going on? I use the task and resource manager to monitor stuff but I honestly dont know what these things report besides lockup or freezes and how to interpret them.

Heres a couple pictures

normal operation (notice the heavy disk activity)
