[computer-tech-support: 8541] Random freezing for about 10 seconds

I have been experiencing a very annoying problem. I have a Dell Optiplex 780 with Windows 7 64-bit. This past June I reinstalled the OS to get rid of another minor problem and the new installation fixed everything. Now for the last several weeks or months- not sure exactly when it started, I have been noticing that the computer freezes up every few minutes for about 10 seconds and then things continue just fine until another freeze and so on.

A few days ago I reinstalled the OS again. Before even loading anything else on here just downloading the Windows Updates the computer was beginning to freeze again in the same way. Seems that the problem possibly stemming from any software had just been ruled out.

For the last few days I have been updating drivers and the Bios thinking that would surely stop the problem, BUT IT HAS NOT! I hardly have any software loaded on the pc at this time and I am sure that it is nothing by way of software causing this issue. I cannot figure out what is causing it though. Most of the drivers have been updated with exception to 8 that I have been unsuccessful in locating. Maybe one of them is the cause of the freezing?

Has anyone else been having this issue?
