I too am a new member here, but seeing as I have freezing issues constantly too (my friend from college says that I "Attract computer issues"), I might be able to lend a hand. I use YlSoftware's Win Utilities (both paid and free versions are available), but the free version works wonders, and it has all kinds of stuff to it. 23 in the bundle in all, I believe. It's disc cleaner works great for cleaning up files that are not needed. Part of the issue could possibly be (though I'm not absolutely sure), that your internet explorer is trying to load tons of temp files that it doesn't need anymore. This can cause slowdowns and hangs all the time. Also I'd recommend killing any running processes that hog up CPU usage since sometimes updates add up and the downloading time takes longer. I'm tellig you this from my own experience, so I hope it helps. Any questions? Ask!
