Heavy intermittent freezes while traveling

I really doubt it's a hardware issue, considering how well the game runs at other times. It's just the traveling that's invokes 3-10 freezes. Automatic weapons are bit problematic as well but THAT I can blame on the weak processor. So, my best guess is the problem is related to loading new areas somehow.
Paging file is defragmented, if that's what you meant, myers? It's in one continuous piece on the HD. But I have no way of knowing if the files INSIDE the paging file are in pieces. During a freeze the HD LED doesn't light up, and the HD is quiet, so it's probably not retrieving anything from the HD anyway.
I'm thinking the game has either trouble loading or executing some files, or scripts, or maybe it's a driver problem? Maybe a botched install, or something I did to the .ini files? One thing of noting is that I disabled HDR and Bloom in those files. But traveling was just as stuttery before I touched them. Toggling "Precache" makes no visible difference.
