my computer freezes every time i paste a file from any drive/folder to any drive/folder including removable disks. All methods, r-click copy and paste, Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V, even dragging a file, nothing ever works. When I copy like r-click then copy or Ctrl+C, everything is still ok, its when I paste it that the computer freezes, I am forced to restart, the file remains ok though.

If you are having other problems also, especially opening larger programs, having two or more programs open at the same time or with pictures/graphics, I would suspect a bad memory module. (If so, use Memtest to be sure, if found, rescan with one stick at a time)
If this came on very suddenly, try a system restore from before you had any problems.
If this was a small annoying problem that slowly grew and is now a big problem, you probably have an infection. Try malwarebytes to scan for it.
Post back results and anything else that might be related.
