I have Windows Vista 64-Bit. 750 GB hardrive. 8 GB of memory. 1GB DDR3 Nvidia Geforce GT 220 EVGA SSC edition graphics card. Sometimes while I'm playing COD World At War, Modern Warfare 2, or COD4 it freezes. Control+Alt+Delete doesn't work. I tried waiting and nothing happens so I'm force to hold down the Power button until it turns off.

This used to happen to me a lot when my VGA burned out. Do any weird lines appear on the screen at times when you boot your computer or when the game freezes do you see any weird lines on the screen? That might be a burned VGA.
Then again it could also be Malware.

I suggest you try taking your VGA out and reinserting it again. Also try defragmenting your hard-drive and scanning your computer for malware!

No I don't have any weird lines popping up. I think I fixed the problem though. I think it was overheating. I played without the panel on and it worked fine. So I moved it and it hasn't frozen since. Thanks for the suggestion though!!!!
