Question about HP dc7600 Small Form Factor P4 640 3.2GHz/2MB L2/800MHz/1GB/80GB SATA/Combo/GigNic/XPP (AF853AW) PC Desktop
I never had a computer freeze up from having too much software on it. Software is simply stored on the hard drive. You might have problems with having too many problems running in the background. This eats up your system resources. Go to start, run, type in msconfig, press enter and click on the startup tab. Uncheck everything you don't NEED to have running in the background. If you aren't sure what something is, don't mess with it. Also, you could have temperature issues. Make sure your fans & vents are clean.
Cleaning the registry will probably make a large difference.

It could be a number of things:
1. The registry - you could download something like CCleaner (freeware) and run this to fix it
2. A virus - I assume you have an anti virus/firewall installed on your PC? If not then try one of the free ones like AVG.
3. Hard drive needs defragging - From Start Menu go to All Programs, Accessories, System Tools, Disk Defragmenter then from there run Analyze on the hard drive(s). It will then tell you whether it needs defragging or not. If so, then run it. This shouldn't take too long, but be patient!
4. Too much software on the PC. Advise on cleaning out and uninstalling anything you aren't using.
I would doubt it's anythiing to do with the mouse or keyboard. Are they wireless or wired?
Try the things I've suggested and let me know how you get on.
