You can also look in your event viewer to see if there is any problem there. Look for a red mark around the time you get the lockups.
Download memtest '86 and run it as the memory may be causing the problem. You can get the floppy version if you have the floppy drive, otherwise make a cdrom version and run it.
I have run zone alarm free firewall for years without problems. I no longer like Nortons, or McAfee for Anti-virus software. Nortons was doing a good job of locking up my computer at times. I have run AVG and lately been running Avast. They are much less system intensive and seem to do just as good a job.
Funny thing is i have no AV on this computer to see if anything could affect it and i have not run across any bad software yet. Maybe its my surfing habits, i really don't know. Sure can't learn much about trojan's and such this way tho!
