Random freezes

HP Recommended
OMEN by HP Desktop PC 880-p1xx
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

My windows 10 is up to date and I had recently updated my driver/all other components of my desktop.. thinking oh?.. That probably fixed it but after 1 or 2 the random freezing came back again... I have no idea what the problem is anymore and I have tried so many solutions online dealing with windows 10 and even omen desktops... I'm so lost on why my desktop is randomly freezing for no reason..

How old is the unit ? I would check to see if the HDD has errors on it. The next thing would be do a clean install of windows

I had my desktop since August of 2018 so I don't think it should be that old.. How would I check the HDD?

The error checking came out with no error unless you were telling me to optimize and defragment my drive.... eror.png

The thing is in the event viewer.. there is nothing happening when it freezes.. like no error or warning messages.. The only error message I really get are from the disturbedCOM.. Unless that is causing the random freezing? but the timing of the error messages don't follow up with the random freezes..

I ran the memory diagnostic tool in windows 10 not too long ago and it didn't came out with any problems.. (Pretty much memtest86 is similar and I have no idea how to run it after unzipping it..)
