    In short, checks system file and store for corruption against original values and restores them to original shape over internet.
    Alright after running "dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth" It saids it fixed corrupted components, Hopefully this will fix my freeze issue. Will update my status again in a day or two.

    After dism you can run SFC again. It's a good idea to run those two things once in a while, needed or not.

    The issue occurred again but now its more noticeable when i'm playing games. Is it normal for my temperatures to be 75C-85C when gaming?

    Processor or GPU or what ? They are not only temps you have to watch, Chipset and VRM modules can heat up and make trouble too.
    Personally, I like this: HWMonitor CPUID - System & hardware benchmark, monitoring, reporting program to monitor parameters like temps an voltages.

    It's my CPU that hovers around 75C-85C when gaming. Here is the CPUID file: HWMonitor.txt

    Can be seen better if you make a screen shot of HW Monitor but if that's processors temp it's pretty borderline.

    Just as I suspected, pretty borderline temps for processor, specially laptop. Can also see that power and voltages are fine. You can get one of those bases for laptops with fans, they can drop temps by 10 - 20%, even if heat is not too much of an issue, it will last longer at least. If you suspect dust inside (computers are great dust collectors), some cleaning of the filter at the bottom intake may help. A blast of "canned air" thru exhaust, side grill can do it nicely if you are not heavy smoker.

    I already have a Fan for the laptop and its on max speed. However, is there no other way to decrease the temp? Does decreasing the game settings help?

    That might help a bit but games are loading GPU more than CPU.
