When a computer freezes there are many possible causes.

One may be that you've downloaded a viruses,

another may be that you have so much adaware running in the background that your computer simply can't handle it.

A third reason may be that you have too many programs loaded on your computer and the system is experiencing excessive pageing.

and other things like a clogged vent. You can vaccum your vents or get some compressed air.

Try running an anti virus and adware scan if the system can handle this. Ad-Aware 2008 and AVG Free are free for personal use.

If that doesn't fix your problem and your running either XP or Vista, try using system restore and restore your computer to an earlier time.

Most companies offer restore disks for your laptop, talk to a representative of the manufacturer and find out if they offer one of these disks for your model.

Last ditch effor, try formatting your hard drive and installe a new copy of your operating system. Please note that formatting is best done through the installer.

Reboot by pressing down and holding the power button for several seconds or until PC shuts down. Reboot to your desktop. Theres several possiblities why it froze and since you forgot to mention your system, what version Windows youre using, how big your hard drive ( and leftover space) or how much RAM you have you can either perform system restore, uninstall whatever you installed to make it freeze, run your anti-virus program, run your spyware program, do a disk clean-up and or perform defrag.

Hold down the power button until it shuts off. Give it a few seconds. That should square it away.

Well firstly, you know apart from viruses,a fair few sites hold malicious code even in video or image form so thats your freezing problem ,most probably,your best bet would be to have it looked at if you cannot manage it further.Manufacturer will have diagnostic equipment /cables/analyzers etc.
At a guess it sounds like a motherboard component.chip failure perhaps which is not necessarily non-user servicable--maybe try a better search for manufacturers site pdf for for you model.
Linux distros are free and auto install ,if you have not luck with windows bang up a linix distro and see what their diagnostics tell you on boot up,things may become clearer-----good luck

If you have an old style mouse it might need cleaning. Turn it over and see if the case will slide off. There is a ball inside the case. You need to clean out the dust - you can use some canned air to get the dust out.

Acer laptop


reboot and go to safe mode with networking

download malware bytes from www.malwarebytes.org

install it and update it and run it and then remove the infections after that reboot to normal mode.

that should fix it if it is a virus problem (thats what i am thinking).

if not then maybe its the mouse that needs to be replaced

cheers
