My PC (Windows 8.1) is getting hangs randomly, NO BSOD, it just stays frozen and i have to do a hard reset, although i noticed that the hangs appears more frequently when using a web browser (any one, Firefox, Chrome or IE) and i have to do a serie of resets where each one the PC hangs after 1-5 minutes of windows login or it will hang after a long while (+4 hours usually).

 

So far i have checked for hard drive issues, CHKDSK found errors, and i scanned them in BOOT but it couldnt fix it. So i launched MHDD in a USB Bootable Stick and did a scan-remap on the drive, it found 35 bad blocks but they were remapped and fixed. Further scans with MHDD doesnt find more errors so i suppose that discards the HDD.

 

I have tried to check for malware but everytime i try to check for it, via Windows Defender or Malware Bytes it hangs in the process, maybe a bit after starting the main file checking or halfway there.

Also if i leave the PC idle downloading something, via browser, torrent or JDownloader2 it will hang usually after 30min-2hour of it, i notice it because the screen stays frozen also and i can check the time the pc hanged.

 

Im going to leave a report of my system specs via HWINFO.

This is perhaps the exact reason why you are experiencing hangs! Bad sectors are usually a result of physical damage to the hard disk. I would suggest you back-up all your personal files at once and replace the hard disk. You may consider running Seagate SeaTools for Windows, but keep in mind that it could make the situation even worse, or all tests could pass, giving you a false sense of security.

I did run Seagate Tools, i ran the short drive self test which passed and i let the long generic overnight, which also passed.

Another oddity i found, if i use a browser alone it would hang the pc, BUT if i leave a game open (atm i have Metal Gear Solid 2: Substance) in the background, the PC doesnt hangs, or ever, the pc doesnt hangs if im actually playing something, even if there are downloads and stuff, so im kinda lost in what would cause the hangs :/

Is this a laptop or desktop? Please follow these instructions - https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/576314/blue-screen-of-death-bsod-posting-instructions-windows-10-81-8-7-vista/ I will repeat — it is best to replace your hard disk.
