I am not sure if this is a network issue, but I have been experiencing serious problems with the system freezing on a regular basis, especially when uploading, downloading and moving large and medium sized chunks of data around the system:

The following has been highlighted:

1. The DHCP allocator has disabled itself on IP address 192.168.1.102, since the IP address is outside the 192.168.0.0/255.255.255.0 scope from which addresses are being allocated to DHCP clients. To enable the DHCP allocator on this IP address, please change the scope to include the IP address, or change the IP address to fall within the scope.

2. The driver detected a controller error on \Device\Harddisk5\D.

Do you possibly have two devices allocating DHCP addresses such as a server, router, multiple routers,  ICS (Internet Connection Sharing) ?
Make sure, if you are using a router that ICS is not enabled on your PC's. To do so go to control panel | network connections | right click on the network adapter | highlight TCP/IP Internet protocol" | Advanced | make sure Internet Connection Sharing is not enabled.
