Hi you guys have helped me out in the past bigtime and now i need your help again.

I have noticed over the last 10 days or so that my computer freezes after a while of mouse "inactivity" I use my machine to render out 3d video files etc and so it is important I can leave it on over night to render out time consuming 3d renders however when i return to my p.c. the mouse is frozen and likewise the keyboard is dead and i have to reset my machine, i cannot identify the problem nor the exact period of time it takes for the "freeze" to happen.

Can anyone of you guys guide me through a fix for this.

The only things out of the ordinary that have happened prior to this are..

Just recently moved address and now access the internet via a usb plugin wireless reciever namely a TP-LINK 54M Wireless USB Adapter model no. TL-WN321G this installed and worked OK straight from the off AND also a friend gave me a micro 4gb Micro SD card, he had placed a video file on this for me and i read it with a micro SD card reader via usb (perhaps this card had a virus on????) as my computer had trouble reading the card but no trouble reading my own.???

Thanks for your time and reading. I await your commands lolz.

Does this look like an OldGrumpyBastard or what?
