Does anyone know what causes a computer to freeze and how to prevent it in future?

I don't really see why my one should, I have bought a new computer about 3 months ago, and it is quite a powerful device. Is any computer subject to freezing or might it have been something I did?

Hi and welcome.
Can you give us some more information on your computer. It's obviously Xp but like how much Ram does it have etc..
What anti-virus/anti-spyware/firewalls do you have installed?

With Regards,
Extremeboy

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 the categories.

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.

Open the Device Manager (Start > Run > type "devmgmt.msc"). Locate the CD/DVD drive, right click on it and select "Uninstall". After it has uninstalled reboot the computer (it will be automatically reinstalled).
