It could be a number of things. More info on the machine would help.

Here are a couple things to try.
1. Defrag your drive start>all programs>accessories>system tools>defrag
2. Run spyware scan
3. Run virus scan

Keep in mind, low memory will cause this as well as running too many programs at once.

Some games can cause this if you don't meet minimum sys reqs to play the game.

Comment back if this helps or not.

Pc freezes when new memory installed


You problem is the motherboard.On your PCs mother board the 128MB that came with the motherboard might be the highest memory the chipset on your motherboard can accommodate. The chipset is built in and you cannot change or upgrade it. You can speed up the PC with how many memo sticks you added, if the chipset can handle. So it look like if you want a fast PC you need to get a new motherboard chipset with higher memory clock frequency.
Here's the pic of the chipset on the motherboard(square type)
