Hi Cancrizans, and welcome to BleepingComputer.
Have you run any scans for infections?
Have you looked in the Event Viewer to see if there are any error showing up at these times?
Start> right click on My Computer> Manage> Event Viewer.
On the right side of the page you will see the options Applications, Security, and Systems, double click on Systems. There are eight columns on this page, the three that you will want are Type, Date, Time, and Event.
The errors will appear in the Type column, they are red dots with a white X inside of them.
Warnings will appear as a yellow triangle with an exclamation mark inside.
When you see an error, double click on it and see what the description is.
Please post the error code/s found in the Event column and the descriptions back in this topic.
You might try running chdsk.
Go to Start and click on My Computer.
Right click on the drive in which you want chkdsk to run. The C: drive is usually contains your operating system.
Click on Properties and click the Tools tab. In the Error-checking box, click the Check Now button.
Set up the Check Disk options by checking one or both check boxes displayed.
