Ok, so I was casually playing my xbox and it was fine. The next time I turned on the xbox, it came up (my gamertag) signed into xbox live then it froze. I thought it was a one time fault but still when I try to use xbox live, the console still freezes around the same point, it works sometimes but very rarely.
There is no porblem with my xbox without live and it seemed to happen suddenly. I have never encountered a problem like this before even with my old xbox (yes the one with the fault is new for about 3-4 months).

You have to recover your gamertag for these arcade games to be played again, it's like an anti - piracy feature of the Xbox 360System not to allow data transfer wihtout prior notice. On your new Xbox 360 System:

• if your are signed in to your profile, you have to sign out first
• after signing out, press the Xbox guide button again and select recover gamertag
• on the next page, confirm on the prompt and follow the onscreen prompt to recover your gamertag
This should allow you to manage and play your downloaded Xbox Live Arcade Games.
What you should try and do is set up a "guest" profile. I'm assuming you just bought your Xbox and have turned it on for the first time? Hence you need a gamertag to get your Xbox set up. They simply need to have a profile on there so you can go to the dashboard. (Hence why people usually create their Xbox Live Gold accounts on their actual Xbox 360. Forget for a moment, that you already have a gamertag. Create a new gamertag (you will automatically get a silver account) once you get to the dashboard, you will be able to go to profiles and the very last option and select "recover gamertag" because at the moment, your gamertag isn't on your actual console yet. Put in the details of your gamertag, password, email etc. And accept the terms & use then recover the gamertag. I'm not sure, but you may be able to recover your gamertag the very first time you turn on your Xbox (which is what you may be having trouble with). If you could, let me know some more of the details and I could give you a more specific answer. Otherwise: 1. Recover gamertag
1. Create a new gamertag (NOT gold, NOT on Xbox.com) 2. Recover gamertag through profiles --> recover gamertag

Corrupt File (microsoft cant let you recover gamertag due to mods hacks and such) that is possibly what has happened. You downloaded a corrupt file and now microsoft has found something wrong. You can no only make a new gamertag and ask for free xbox live for compensation. (you might get it)
