Have a look in the Event Viewer for any errors at the time of the freezes.

To open the Event Viewer go to Start > Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Event Viewer. Alternately, go to Start > Run and type in "eventvwr.msc" (without the quotes) and press Enter.

Check in all three categories (Application, Security, and System).

If you find an error that occurred at the time right-click on it and select properties. Copy the information in the window and post it back here. This will help us diagnose your problem.

Just post the latest error. Right-click on the error and select properties. Copy the information in the window and post it back here

Also, you may want to try updating your video driver.

The error messages don't seem to be what would cause the freezing of your system (IMO).

Recently I've seen a lot of systems with 1 gB of RAM that are running excruciatingly slow. The most common causes are:
1) Malfunctioning anti-virus/anti-spyware programs
2) Way to much stuff running at once
3) Malware.

I'd suggest first running these free, online scans to see if there's any issues with the system:
http://safety.live.com
http://housecall.trendmicro.com

Does the system recover from the freeze - or does it just stay frozen until you reboot it?
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.

JacksonT,
If you have a problem you would like to discuss, please start your own topic.
This will help to avoid the confusion, of trying to help two or more people, in the same thread, with different problems.
Even if your problem is similar to the original poster's problem, the solution could be totally different due to different hardware, software, system requirements, etc....
This is also known as hijacking a thread, which is not considered to be proper forum etiquette.

The Internet is so big, so powerful and pointless that for some people it is a complete substitute for life.
Andrew Brown (1938-1994)


A learning experience is one of those things that say, "You know that thing you just did? Don't do that." Douglas Adams (1952-2001)


"Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination circles the world." Albert Einstein (1879-1955)

I would try testing your RAM for any memory errors. You can use MemTest86 for this. Let it run through at least 3 passes, best to just leave it run overnight.

What is the make and model of your computer?

In that case try updating your sound driver.
