    So you originally downloaded Win8 from the MSN site or another site ?


    Also, what is your antivirus ? Windows Defender, another, using more than one AV ?
    after yo u installed win8 did you go to your computer manufacturers web site and download and install all upto date win8 drivers for your computer ,staring with chipset drivers ,then video drivers ,and sound drivers ect ect

    Could be a failing HDD, like @qwetymikey mentioned. Had something similar with a failing Seagate-HDD, which I now try to RMA soon.

    Whenever I've seen random "hangs" like this, it's been "bad" RAM or overheating issues...bad RAM is more common. Sometimes, the "bad" RAM will work perfectly fine in another system. I had 2 sticks of 8Gb RipJaws RAM in my PC and experienced random hangs and "swirling circle of death" in Win7, I put the RAM in my son's PC build (defferent CPU and motherboard) and it works great in his PC and my PC hasn't had a problem since. I hope this helps...

    I suspect bad RAM, but follow the advice the others have given here (test hard drive, etc...) and then troubleshoot the RAM. I hope this helps!
