How can eliminate freeze ups

Question

The computer apparently freezes for 5 to 10 seconds then returns to normal. It does this perhaps every 5 minutes. If you type while its "frozen" the letters will display immediately after it "unfreezes." I recently defragmented the C drive, that took hours. The freezing episodes seem to have been occurring after the defrag though not sure.
