Hello my friend,this is looks like a virus problem or hard disk failure.The first you have to do is to update your anti virus and make a full deep system scan.Then you are going to check your disk for errors,go to MY COMPUTER right click on your disk,click on properties,tools,error checking or check disk for errors and put tick on the boxes and start checking your disk(probably will ask for restart).

Whenever my wife and my fitbit trackers are downloading onto our apple desktop it freezes up. The mouse or keyboard will not respond to anything, so we have to turn the computer off.

Inspect the computer for compartibility systems to the apple devices. Usually prior devices that were manufactered of apple were incomparible with microsoft windows computers. The freezing is an incomparible effect also sysbol of unachievd installations. Receently apple has introduced devices that communcated with windows computers.
