Too slim on details.

It could be the owner isn't keeping the vents clean (canned air) to addons, outright infections of the OS to the laptop has a hardware failure.

What do you think it is?

Re: no clue

Then more about the symptoms please.

"It freezes up for a few secs then starts back up and may continue that or not." surely doesn't tell all you can tell about your issue.

I supplied clues.

The items I listed are not only ideas but items you can respond to such as if you use the canned air on a regular basis, if you scan for malware (you should reveal with what) and then supply more clues.

Malwarebytes is not enough.

But first. Canned air and it's use is pretty simple. You power off the machine and given the vents a short burst of air to get the dust out of there. If you feel uncomfortable doing your own work, then use the place you use for repairs.

And then we still need some antivirus. I have yet to tell anyone to use anything specific.

Finally the make, model, age, use of the machine is not in your posts. It's like taking a car in. They note the make, model, age, use (miles) and more. Here you've written so little that I can't offer much.
