Thanks to anyone who can help me with this problem!!!
When I boot the computer in normal mode, sometimes it will load up everything fine-no problems until I try to start running programs, get on the internet, etc...then it freezes up. I have to hold the power button to shut it down. Then wait for a few minutes to restart it. I start in safe mode and everything runs fine...Please help. Thank you.

Any error messages, BSODs?

Freezing can be caused by many things...but overheating tends to produce freezing with no error reported.
