Have a look here to see if a program is using CPU 100%. If you see something that's using all your CPU resource then have a look into it.

If 'System Idle Process' is 99% when your not doing anything then that's ok.
Yes, explorer has been know to the source at times.

@ OP: Definitely check that out.

That temp is within range. Those Proc's can max at 70C/158F

Are you sure its your hardware thats causing you to freeze up?

Have you done a fresh install of windows?
