I know this is a really really general question, but I noticed all those Admin Tools and Scheduled Tasks which can be applied.

Whenever my PC gets a system hang, my toes curl. What should I do, rather than holding my breath and doing a hard reboot?

Go to Control Panel>Admin Tools> Event Viewer> look in the system and application logs for errors. They should point you to what is wrong with the pc.
