My laptop stucks when I try to open a file

Specs: Windows 7
Hello, I have a hp probook laptop. I bought it recently with windows 7 operation system and I also have Microsoft security essentials installed. A problem appeared a few days ago. When I try to open a desktop item or generally a file from start menu, for example Documents, my laptop delays a lot to open it or even close it. For example if I want to open documents then a white fraime appears while loading, I try to close it because the file will delay a lot to open, but I can not. If I press the Esc key I noticed that I cancell the opening more quickly.

However, I can browse through internet without any problem or delay at all, even if my laptop ties to open a file.
When I restart the computer, everything works fine. I noticed that this problems appears, after working in desktop fo 5 or 10 minutes, or when my laptop sleeps and open it, then the desktop icons wont function.

I already have done a search for errors, through Local Disc C --> Properties--> Tools and so on and it did not find anything.

Please I could appreciate any help, thank you

Hibernate is better than sleep if you are going to leave it that way for more than a short time. Please see:

You will get less errors with a cleaner restart with hibernate when used for longer periods of time and it will use less battery power as well. Do not forget to restart it occasionally if you do not shut it off each night, though shutdown nightly is recommended.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
