How many CD/DVD drives are installed? Does it happen to all of them or just one in particular?

It could be the CD/DVD drive itself. If the CD/DVD drive is faulty it may take windows explorer a little more processing power to try and read from the faulty CD/DVD drive causing the computer to hang. Next time this happens, eject the disc and see if the computer resumes working normally.

You can also try installing another CD/DVD drive and see if the problem exists with another CD/DVD drive.
