All of your picture links are shortened "..." and do not work. It would be better if you simply click the "Go Advanced" button and then use the paperclip icon to attach your pics to the forum directly.

Unfortunately freezing problems can be very complex. Actual BSODs with minidumps give much better pointers to a problem so if you get that post the dumps.

Out-dated Driver issues are very common; you seem to have ruled those out.

Anti-virus software is a common issue. Turning it off won't help but you can completely uninstall it and see if the issue persists; if it does then at least you ruled it out and can reinstall.

Sometimes setting the Control Panel\Power Options to high Performance helps with laptops.

There is a huge thread on this subject which may offer some other thoughts HERE but please continue to post in this thread, not in that one.
