I just saw the guy who posted this a few under me and I thought about putting it under his, but my problem might be different.
Basically, it happens most when I'm exiting a program. Mostly when I quit a game or start one up. It doesn't do it for long, though. Maybe only 10-15 seconds and then it's fine afterwards. It just recently started doing this and I've really been searching all around to see if anyone else has had a similar problem. I just got a replacement GTS 250 but I doubt that would be it. Could my processor be going out? Also, I play these games though Steam and at first I thought it might just be Steam, but I JUST now had another freeze and I'm only browsing the internet. Same goes for when I go from full screen mode in Youtube and exit out. I clicked a link and it froze...
I'd greatly appreciate it if I could possibly get some feedback on this.

Well, what did you change recently? New drivers? New hardware?

sounds like hard drive lag to me.
You're out of ram or something, and its paging to/from the HDD
you've failed to provide your complete system specs, so we cant give you detailed help.
