Question about PC Desktops
Sorry, it's completely vague why that would happen with as little information as you have provided. When does it freeze up?
Major causes could be:
You are not running a modern antivirus scan and your machine is boggled by all the rotten 'zombie' malware on it.
Your heatsink/fan is full of dust and your CPU is overheating, causing a halt (and it's old enough to do that inelegantly; but we knew =that=, I suppose....)
Your RAM got all dusty and needs to be dusted and reseated. (See a theme here? You just need that brush attachment for the portable vacuum...and to open your PC's case from time to time to see if things are keeping cool in there. If they aren't, those components will fail sooner than otherwise.)
You just added a component which caused things to keel over, because the driver for that component is old or badly written.
You started running iTunes, which eats a lot of CPU...but the Task Manager should eventually come up if this were the case.
