I'm not really sure what's causing it, but for reference I have an Acer Aspire 7551. Sometimes it runs smoothly, but it seems to be freezing more and more. Usually when trying to run higher functioning processes like playing video files. Any ideas what the issue might be and how to fix  it?

Clean your machine with Privazer


Then defrag with.Ultimate Defrag.


Then I would suggest that you disable useless startups, all are really not needed, except your antivirus. When you disable items from startup, a reboot is needed to feel the changes. Whats In Startup.


After the reboot, tell me how things are running.
