MAC Mini keeps hanging when I run Google Drive, Microsoft Office suite, and even iTunes. I have done a rebuild as well. Seems to be some issue as well when the MS Error Reporting kicks up it locks up the system.

A problem that persists after you have reinstalled the OS could be a hardware error. You should run the Apple hardware tests: https://support.apple.com/en-gb/HT2...

That part didn't work--couldn't get the hardware test to launch. I have a bluetooth keyboard--does that factor in? I was holding D down during the Apple logo/start up and no dice.

Have an update though--it seems to be iTunes/Photo that is causing more of the disruption. MSO products take a while to launch, but changing the iTunes behavior when a device is plugged in has mitigated the performance problem slightly.
