1- Your ram (mermory stick), if you have more then one stick of ram remove them and only leave one to see if the problem continues if it does not remove the one there and put another one and so on.
2- Video card problem may cause a system to freeze (but usually it will freeze and the screen will go black)
3- Bad video drivers.
If you have only one stick of ram here is another way to check your ram is to download the bootable iso image of MEMTEST86 and burn it.
Once burned go in your BIOS and make your CD/DVD rom is your first boot device, put your cd in your drive save you BIOS and exit, the program should start and run by itself. If you see error messages at one point then you need new ram if you do not then your problem is somewhere else
You can also check all your ram that way if you have more then one but just remember to only leave one stick at a time since the program does not test stick by stick but all at once so if you get an error message and you have more then one stick in there then you will not know which is the defective one or if both are defective.
Also it might be software related (as virus spyware ect) to be sure of that go to the VIRUS SPYWARE AND TROJAN REMOVAL SECTION for help

RAM is definitely another possibility (which reminds me, I need to make a CD with Memtest86...).
Oh, and memtest86 is possibly with more than 1 stick of ram... it's just that only one can be done at a time.
