Hi all - my laptop keeps hanging, particularly when doing work stuff, with outlook, excel, word, teams & chrome open. It will hang for a few seconds (no unresponsive white screen - just moving very slowly - then catch up suddenly & type whatever I was typing/do the mouse movements that didn't occur when it hung. Appears to work better when I restart post work & doesn't hang when playing games. Any idea as to why?

My laptop is an MSI GS65 - 2 years old, i7 & 16GB ram plus v fast SSD. This is frankly a pain & very irritating. Happens across all the apps mentioned above, and desktop. Has only been doing this noticeably for less than a month, perhaps since latest windows update.
