Computer freezes whilst using Windows but sound still continues in background.

Recently, I have added an SSD to my system and since then I have been getting random lockups, but if there is a video playing or music, the sound will continue even though the video has frozen.

I have run Memtest and Chkdsk both to find that everything seems normal.

The only thing I can find is whilst running (Perfmon /report) via the run function on the start menu,
It says that I have two drivers missing for my keyboard and mouse, that I have missing events from the event log and that taskhostw.exe is using up 99.6% of my CPU.

My system consists of:
- I5 6500 @ 3.20ghz
- 8gb Ram
- Msi H110M pro-vh mobo
- Gtx 1060 6gb
- 1tb Western digital HDD
- 500gb Kingston SSD
- Corsair 550w PSU

If anybody has any suggestions of any ways in which I could try to fix this issue, I would be grateful.
It's just got to the point where the sluggishness is starting to annoy me.

Thanks,
J
