See if you can check the temperature of your system in the bios. Check when you first boot up and after it freezes restart/ go into the bios and check it again. One thing overheating does is freeze up or shut down your pc. Could also be a virus. Also delete all your temp files/ internet temp files too. Check your memory if you don't find the problem here. A good way to control your system resources is to go to start/ run/ type "msconfig"/ enter. Check "selective start up"/ click on the "startup" tab on top right. You can almost safely un-check everything except your AntiVirus software depending on your pc unless you have a lap. Then your would need to leave things like the keyboard closure, touch pad etc. checked. This will take away any doubt that it may be a software conflict or to many programs trying to open at once causing your crash.

Hit start-run- type in MSCONFIG - select the startup tab - uncheck all the boxes - restart the computer . you will get a message saying you used the utility to change the way windows starts, this is normal , check the lil box that tells it not to bother you again and then ok. let me know if you need more help.. please rate ..
