Thanks for the tip, I done that and ran Malware Anti-Bytes to check whats going on.
Please try and boot into safe mode and see if you have the same issues.
Restart your computer and start pressing the F8 key on your keyboard, when the boot menu appears select safe mode.

I forgot.... I don't plan to check anyway. But yeah its 6 years old and has about I don't know.... probably 50-100 GB or more...
Try the safe mode like the other person mentioned. How much memory do you have (6 year old laptop!)? Having 512M might be bearable, but that depends on what is running. I won't work on anything that has under 1G. Do you still have the same issues without the network connection? What is trying to update?
This sounds very much like a "parasite" i.e. Virus, Trojan, etc. I'd be looking to get it cleaned out. That's because it sounds like the freezing isn't random. Check out one of the appropriate forums for doing that.
Otherwise, an overheated cpu can cause computers to freeze up - and this will happen randomly and vary according to the room temperature. Dust buildup on the cpu heatsink, inoperative or very slow fan, etc.

Just last night. It's working again.
When was the last time that you cleaned it out?
