Unknown Hardware Issue

So for the past week my computer has been locking up and freezing constantly. It's going to be 6 years old this Feb so I'm not surprised if something is going bad. I don't have to be doing anything special for it to freeze either. I'm thinking (and hoping) it's only the hard drive going bad because I can replace that relatively easily and at the cost of nothing. What confuses me though, is I ran EVERY diagnostic off the MRI, and everything passes. I don't know what to do. Something else I noticed is after hardware diagnostics I ran FACE to check for viruses and it has been freezing after Kaspersky on the Panda scan. Happened twice so far, scanning again starting with Panda and skipping Kaspersky to see what happens. I'm thinking it was possibly a coincidence but I don't know. If anyone has some insight as to what might be going on I'd greatly appreciate it. Thanks.
