Computer becomes unresponsive to any user input. If any media is playing, the audio will stutter in a loop. To return the computer in a responsive state, it is required to forcefully shut-down (power-off) the computer. Seemingly occurs at random; sometimes doesn't occur for days. The problem seems to be unlinked to the amount of system resources being used. Nor does it consist within a series of applications.
I severely doubt this is a malware problem. My guess is that it related to the hardware malfunctioning. I have ran many scans through-out different anti-malware applications, all of which suggest that the system is clean.
