    Desktop Randomly Freezes


    I really dont know what the problem is but for some reason my desktop will randomly freeze for a few seconds and go back to normal, and freeze as in cant click anything but if I have a program open like steam it works just fine. When I check Event Viewer this is always there Click image for larger version
