Sounds like the following

Virus

Spyware

Devices or drivers are conflicting.

Hard Drive is failing

Step one

Disconnect the computer from the internet.

If this is the problem it is more than likley a virus or spyware

If it still freezes proceed to step 2

Step 2

Restart Computer in safe mode, do not connect to the internet.
To restart the computer in safemode turn on computer and press F8 continuosly until a screen of options comes up.
Select Safemode without networking

If this is the problem it is more than likley a virus or spyware

If computer still freezes up proceed to step 3.

For windows XP
Locate the My Computer Icon and open it. Locate Local Disk C: Or whatever harddrive that has windows installed
RIGHT Click it. It will then open a menu of options, select properties. At the top select tools tab. Click the check now button.
A new window will pop up, check both boxes and press start.
Another window will pop up select yes and restart the computer. Do not press anything and let it work.

Considering the age of you computer it is probably the hard drive in which case should only cost about $45 for another one. search for a harddrive that fits your model on ebay or another trusted site.
It is not very difficult to change the hard drive so dont panic.

Install a new crank shaft sensor. I had the same problem with my wife's Jeep. It would run fine fore days at a time then quit. When the crank sensor goes out their is no spark or injection of fuel into the engine. This is a Hall Sensor. They can be intermittent, and affected bu heat. If your Jeep will not start, try freeing the sensor and see if it starts. Cold Freeze is used in electronics to test

M2000 heat causing trouble?


Are the fans clear from dust and debris? this is a major factor, if it keeps freezing you may have partially burnt out the processor or other component.

All Day Shooting


I will leave mine on unless I know I won't be taking a picture for quite a while. Sleep mode does a good job of saving the batteries. The only thing I don't like is, sometimes, not always, but sometimes, it is slow to wake up. You can half press the shutter once in a while to keep it from going to sleep, but you're batteries will die very quickly. I do that if I know a good shot is coming any minute and I know my camera is ready to go to sleep. Just don't do it too much.
