Question Unexplainable Computer Lockups

It only happens when I'm connected to the internet through my wireless network card, that my computer just randomly locks up, whenever I'm downloading, or uploading. Sometimes, my pc will lockup and when I reboot it will happen again minutes after I restart.

When my pc locks up, the mouse doesn't move, and no matter what button I press nothing happens, so I usually result in manually restarting my PC.

I have tried scanning my PC for viruses and spyware with the latest protection possible, but have found nothing. I have also tried SCANDISK, and Disk Defrag, but nothing works.

Can someone please help me? Or at least tell me what is causing the lock ups?

take out your wireless network card and try a different one.
