Edit: After looking online I've been hearing that it could be my Power Supply. I have a ATX12V 450W Power Supply.

Read that to find out how to test your psu. I don't know if that is the real issue though.
It might be malware, and you should check out the guide: http://www.geekstogo...uide-t2852.html
If you have a feeling it might be malware, you could post your logs and the techs could look them over, to see if malware is the issue.
Are you overclocking any hardware? (cpu, graphics card?)
Try doing the things entailed in this article.

when it hangs...if you let it set for 5 or 10 minutes can you resume working...
can you post a screenshot of your processes for us when you have ALL your normal things going...click on the cpu at the top to get the ones that are using the most resources to the top of the list....drag the window open to get it all before getting the screenshot..

Do you know what is using the process searchindexer.exe? I have seen that process cause some problems like yours.
Do you have itunes installed?
Itunes is installed and I'm think the process called searchindexer is from a program installed by windows update.
I also reuploaded the image of my processes on photobucket.

That might solve your problem. When the computer freezes, observe task manager, and see what is acting up.
