Comp freaks out @ My Computer

Hey guys, I am in need of your help.

When I double-click on "My Computer" on desktop, the window opens but no drives are shown in the window.

I can wait for hours and no change. I click to close it (either through Ctrl+Alt+Del or by hitting X) and it finally shows me that "My Computer is no longer responding."

I choose End Now and the screen goes to a blank wallpaper. It remains in this state for 5-20 minutes.

Now, here's the thing that really has me puzzled on it... This happens intermittently! So I gotta cross my fingers and hope it doesn't freeze on me when I want to open My Computer.

Lemme know if you have any ideas on this.

Dell Dimension 4600
Windows XP Pro Sp2
Pentium4 2.80 GHz
80 GB HD
1.0 GB RAM
