Computer freezing? Try the link Vaanish provided for you. What actually happened when it's freezing? Are you running any big programs that make the CPU at full load?

Freezing is a difficult thing to track. Could be a virus, a very corrupt registry, a poorly seated cable connection, a corrupt driver, a full HDD. If the drive has less than 1gb of room, it's full. It could be bad software on the system that isn't necessary or failing power supply, RAM, video card, motherboard, CPU. Only way to test hardware is swap it with what does work to test it (hardware, that is).

Run your antivirus software, spyware, etc first.
