I built this computer 3 months ago and started having problems like a month in. No matter what I'm running, whether it be sony vegas and 2 games at once or just surfing the internet it will randomly freeze for like 5 seconds every minute or so. Its not that the computer cant keep up because after every freeze it jumps back to running at full power. I've run malware scans and virus scans and have come up with nothing. Along with the freezing, theres a random blue screen about every 2 weeks. I tried cleaning it up and getting rid of unnecessary programs on the sata drive to see if the space can alleviate some of the problems and it did for like a day until a random blue screen happened again. During these freezes I cant even access the task manager until its done well....being frozen. My friend did give me a weird copy of Windows professional he got from his university but I doubt that could be the problem. If anyone could help point me to where the problem lies I would be much appreciateive
