man i have no idea what in the world is goin on... ive Rolled back updated, disable stuff unstalled stuff.. checked my hd's for error's. i have done everything... i have no raid drivers on my pc.. bios is updated...then i get this
Oh my lord. I was having this exact same problem. Getting ridiculous freezing while accessing the harddrive, aka installing programs, downloading files, transferring files, etc. Sometimes my computer would freeze for over 15 minutes. I RMAed my intel 330 120GB SSD. I did a full RAM test with memtestx86, I tested my old and new hard drives with CrystalDiskMark. This also included installing a brand new copy of Windows 7 ultimate. Nothing. No problems. Still freezing. Many forums say it is a driver problem or raid controller problem, so I messed with my drivers for god knows how long with no progress.
Finally, after countless hours of research, I realized I installed my anti-virus software, Ad-Aware on both SSDs. This was a stroke of genius, because for some reason I got a permission access error when trying to download a file. Chrome said it was probably my anti-virus. Boom. Uninstalled. Everything working perfectly now.
Sometimes I wonder how useful anti-virus programs are. The majority of the time they seem to cause more trouble than they're worth.
