Default programs freezing

Hi guys I'm new here (sorry if I'm posting this wrongly or something)
Recently I've been having problems with my pc
It's got 2gb ram, core 2 2.4ghz processor, nvidia 7900 gs, vista home premium(dells upgrade from xp service)
Programs often freeze and starting IE then closing it again often clears everything up
IE starts up frozen, I close it and after a few tries everything responds again
I'm not sure but Im pretty sure it's hardware related, maybe something to do with ram stopping

Anyone got any ideas?

Cheers guys

Default Re: programs freezing

Hello,

If you believe this is RAM related run MemTest86.

Memtest86 - Download Page

Run for around 4 hours to get accurate results.

It is a ISO image. Burn the ISO with ImgBurn.

Cheers,
Mak
