Desktop + Taskbar not responding/freezing 24/7

This problem suddenly happened without warning about a month or so ago. If I am to hover my mouse over an application on the taskbar, it'll freeze to the point where the time on the bottom right corner will stay as is until it unfreezes, showing the time to jump server minutes ahead to match real time. It's quite unbelievable to say the least, and I can barely navigate through my computer to try to fix the problem thanks to the persisting lag. Any help would be much appreciated.
