My computer keeps freezing. I can shut it off breifly and it will work smoothly for a few minutes, but starts freezing again after a few minuts of use.

When you say freezing- is it momentary freezes or the laptop locks up completely?
If it is momentary freezes the thread here has some useful info which may help. Seems disabling Screen Refresh under Power setting in the intel Graphics Control Panel solved it .Poster still testing:
Many of the users in the reddit link didn't have the Intel Control Panel with stock Intel graphics driver but it should be available in your Spectre. Right click desktop-choose Intel Grapics settings. Look for Power in the control panel.

This solution worked on my HP Spectre X360, which had become exceedingly frustrating to use because of the momentary freezeups that increased in frequency the longer I used the computer. It also fixed two other issues I have had: 1/ unpredictable scrolling and 2/ what I labeled as the angry fan mode. Now, the computer scrolls smoothly and predictably with the trackpad, and it does not become uncomfortably warm during use. I bet battery life increases now that the "angry fan" issue has been resolved. I admit I do not know the downside to this fix. So far, I have not detected any.
