My computer will hang and freeze quite a bit using certain programs. The disk usage will go to 100% and it will freeze for about a minute or two and then start working like nothing happened. I noticed it will do it a lot if i use chrome, or opera, but it won't do it with firefox. Also it will do it if i play saints row IV on my HDD instead of playing it on my SSD, but i can play games such as battlefield 4 and skyrim with mods off my HDD without problems. Does anyone have any idea why it does that with certain programs?
My specs are
Windows 8.1
fx-8320 4.0ghz OC
adata xpg v2 1866mhz 2x4gb
gigabyte ga-970a-ds3p
gigabyte windforce OC gtx 770 2gb
apevia warlock 900w psu
toshiba DT01ACA100 1tb HDD
pny xlr8 120gb SSD

I have disabled everything in chrome but still freeze. Everything is up to date and no viruses or malware.


Also I tried using the internet explorer desktop mode that comes with windows 8 and that doesn't freeze compared to google chrome.
