Frequent Interface Freezing in Photoshop

I am using Windows 10, PS 2015.1.1

In this version, and the previous few, I have frequent interface freezes : the pointer is still able to move, however it remains stuck at the last selected tool and has no effect on Photoshop itself. The problem is 'fixed' by selected another application and then returning to Photoshop. Any idea what this could be?

First, you should be on 2015.1.2 (aka 16.1.2).
Generally that means that something is causing events to go to the wrong place.
Are  you using any third party plugins or extension panels that could be interfering with event processing?

I have no third party plugins or extensions. The only things I have added non standard are several brush sets.

The update cycle did run a few days ago, but my PSD in 'About' reads as 2015.1.1
