I'd also suggest opening up Task Manager (Ctrl-Alt-Del) and leaving it on your Desktop while performing the tasks that slow/freeze the computer.
Click on the Processes tab of Task Manager and watch the process that consumes the most CPU cycles. Also check to see what's consuming the most memory (you can sort each column by clicking on the column's title).
Finally, if this doesn't show anything significant, then go to the View menu and click on Select Columns. In the next window, put a check mark next to IO Reads, IO Writes, and IO Other. Then click OK. Resize the Task Manager window so you can view these columns and see if there's any excessive disk activity (the IO stuff) associated with the freezing. The name of the process that's causing it will give us some clues on how to proceed.
