I have a problem- my computer keeps randomly freezing! It does it when im running lots of programs or even when im not running any and nothing will respond so i have to manually restart it. I have also noticed that it is taking longer to start up than it used to. Does anyone know what could be causing this?? Thanks in advance.

it could be something as simple as installing a new program which is taking most of your memory resources. all the way to something as dificult as spyware/malware.

Have you recently installed any new programs?? and could you tell us a little more details about your computer? (i.e. processor info, amount of memory.etc...)
