This doesn't sound good! It would be great to get any more information if we can to help diagnose this problem. A few questions for starters:
1. Could you give any more information as to what the "freeze" means? Does it just pause, and recover, or does it freeze and lock up, requiring a reboot?
2. Does this happen with all files, or just specific files?
3. Can you give any more details on the hardware setup?
When you mention dragging, are you referring to dragging items on canvas? Dragging outside files into XD?
Do you have HW updated with latest drivers for the GPU?
Thank you for detailing your trouble in the forum. We'd be happy to help walk you through capturing some diagnostics if you are able/willing to help out.
