It has been pretty sudden, my laptop the past 2-3 days now has been freezing suddenly after about 1-2 hours after start up. On one occasion it was still at the login screen and it was frozen. Mostly it has occurred when I was just simply on Facebook, checking email, and doing smaller tasks that I have had no issue with just last week. Once frozen, it does not respond to Ctrl+Alt+Delete or Alt+F4, only a hard restart seems to make it work again.

I ran Malwarebyte, Viper Antivirus in Safe mode, nothing was found. I also ran CC registry cleaner and it found some issues with the Window System-32 files. It was de-fragmented about 6 days ago. The laptop itself is Toshiba Satellite and is about 3 years old, running Windows 7 64-bit Ultimate. I'm not sure if it could be a hard drive starting to go out or something else, it just seems the issue has occurred rather suddenly which seems to make me think that something was downloaded/occurred very recently.

Anyone have any suggestions?
