    It seems that my programs would still randomly stop responding for a few seconds.

    Check to see if all your drivers are up to date.

    & perhaps, if you use CCleaner, try the registry cleaner.
    I had an issue once & figured it might be coming from the registry.
    I used the CCleaner registry tool & it fixed the problem.

    I run CCleaner at least once a day, as for drivers i do believe they should all be up to date (or at least the ones from my manufacturer's driver website). Is there a software to check if my drivers are up to date?

    I use DriverMax

    It works pretty good.

    Going to test if there's any more freezes.

    With the latest version of DM you need to Scan for new drivers.
    It's a little buggy, but no biggie.

    They have updates regularly-Free.

    I do have a question regarding DM though. When in the Downloaded Drivers section, will it re-install every driver when i click select all and install?

    Also, i managed to buy 2 year subscription of DM for 50% off with the Black Friday coupon!

    NOTE---

    I like to install drivers 1 at a time just in case it's the wrong driver.
    If there is a problem it offers other drivers to try.

    That's only happened to me once in the past several years.
    Usually it picks the right driver.
