My computer is only left on for about 5 or 10 minutes and it freezes up to the point where I have to reboot it and it usually takes 4-5 times of rebooting for it to come up to "start windows normally"...

Everything freezes constantly after about 5 minutes or more no matter what is running or not. Have to hard boot.


Try this...reboot the computer and as it starts to come back up, press the F8 key at the top of your keyboard to enter Safe Mode without networking.

See if the computer will stay on longer than 5 minutes.

Run you anti-virus program in safe mode and see if there is any malware on your machine.

That's a start. Let me know waht you find and we'll work on it more.
