    Try uninstalling your antivirus and any security software you are currently running, then restart. See if you still have a freeze. And no, this is not Windows XP you will not get infected with a virus the moment you connect to the internet without an antivirus.
    Logic without the fatal effects.

    Contrary to what other people have said in this thread... consistent freezing and crashing within windows is NOT generally due either to a virus or antivirus software going wild. While I'm assuming you haven't had a blue screen of death yet (that would be the clincher) my best guess would be that it could well be a piece of hardware malfunctioning (as is often the case). Check your device manager for any conflicting hardware if there is any and then ensure ALL of your drivers (especially graphics) are up-to-date, often outdated drivers can cause serious issues within Windows when certain products are installed, it's all to-do with the way Windows allocates it's resources which results in much of the problems that you'' encounter.

    PS: I just noticed your reply (which was after I began typing this, lol), You were right to update your copy of windows and drivers, I would manually check for updates for everything on the system (as mentioned) if possible because it's usually driver issues that cause Windows to glitch out and go nutty.

    i think your laptop has some virus and due to those virus may be your laptop doesn't respond for some of program you should remove virus from your laptop and then restart it and try to open programs you specified above
    if you are not able to these yourself then go to laptop repair shop and they will do it
