Solved

PC randomly locking up/freezing for 30 seconds- a minute!

So my PC will completely freeze for 30 seconds to one minute fairly frequently (4-5 times a day) and it is very frustrating.

-All my drivers are up to date
-I did a memory test and it came back with 0 errors
-Full virus scan by Mcafee came back with no viruses

My spec:
-AMD 6300 6 core CPU
-GTX 650
-Corsair RM550 PSU
-8GB RAM
-1TB HDD

Further info -
-My event viewer gave me this error multiple times, (I don't know whether it's related to the freezes): Kernel-Power 41 (63)

Please help me as this is a major hindrance! If you need any more info about my PC just let me know! Thankyou!!
