Default Program request?

My pc has started crashing quite frequently, and I was wondering if there was software out there that could tell me what the offending piece of hardware or software could be. The pc hangs too so it would have to be some kind of constant logging software that i could restart and check to see what died.

Did you check the Event Log thats built into the o/s to see what happened before it froze?

And if the lag goes away start by re checking one program then restart again and if it still works restart and recheck another, keep doing this until you find the program that is causing the problem
