The computer screen freezes and I have tried to crtl+Alt+Del but it will not work so I have to shut the computer down and restart it.

Here is some background info on the computer:

OS= windows xp pro service pack 2
processor = AMD athlon 2800+
1.5 gig ram
Graphics Card = RADEON 9200 PRO
2 western digital hard drives: wd800Jb and wd400jb
acer LCD monitor model# AL2016W

This problem has been happening now for about 2 weeks. I have tried running registry mechanic to fix any possible problems.
When the computer freezes and I get it restarted again the first thing I do is to open the event log and check to see any possible errors and have not found any that occur at the time of the freeze.
I have ran some scans on the hard drives with Western Digital's Diagnostics software and the hard drives seem to be good.

The problem seems to occur more frequently if I access websites with heavy graphics or flash presentations.

I am a novice computer guy and am trying to learn as much as I can but this problem is more than I can handle.

Would be thankful for any help!

have you tried to run
your system restore back to a more useable date ?
the disc defragment program to enable the computer to work more efficiently?

what is your antivirus program and which specific scans have you already run?

apart from this issue are you having any other problems such as unwanted pop ups or page redirections?
