Hey, thanks to whoever responds to this, i appreciate it ALOT!!!!. The thing is this, i've got a very fast computer, not the newest ever, but it has 1 GB of memory, which is just about all it takes, & i have the fastest wireless internet. I am very satisfied with how fast my computer is, how quickly it surfs the internet, & how fast it downloads things, but the freezing drives me crazy!!!!! I'm also constantly keeping it safe with all of my antivirus/cleaning programs. But for some reason, it constantly freezes, when my other computer, which is alot slower NEVER freezes at all. I do about the same exact things on each computer so i don't know how to fix this problem. I was wondering if maybe there was something i could buy to maybe cool my computer down & keep it running easier, but i have no idea if there's something like that. I do have a Large DVD to IPOD program that might be what makes my computer so slow, plus itunes & msn messenger live & Morpheus but i don't have too many programs, so what's the matter with my computer? PLEASE LET ME KNOW if you have any idea that could help me. THANK YOU VERY MUCH & please reply as soon as possible.

have you tried to disable ypur dvd or ipod at start up you should try diabling them one at a time try the dvd first if thats not it try the ipod next that way you could rule out those 2 for possible freezing

does your computer freeze when you use dvd or ipod try to be more specific

My Comp will usually freeze when a program that takes up lots of ram, like the ipod converter & another smaller program run at the same time, but it has also frozen alot when itunes or msn live is running

Yeah, but i pretty much know now what it is now, i talked to a tech, i'm pretty sure it's either overheating, insufficient power or i might just need to clean out my computer, thanks for replying!!
