Hey guys i really need help. For the past couple months, whenever i run the game World of Warcraft my computer will instantly freeze upon logging into my character. The weird part is that after i do a manual restart and try again, i can make it into the game further and further. (For example the first time ill be able to play for 2 minutes before freezing, the second time i can play for 10 minutes and then freezes etc.) I have updated my audio and video drivers, deleted my Cache, interface and What the... folders for WOW in case of any corrupted files. I have completely reinstalled wow, but no luck. I think that it may be a hardware issue, so i tried running speed-fan in case of any temperature issues but again it was to no avail. My computer does not freeze when idling or running Firefox and i leave it on during the night now. It is not a memory issue because a friend of mine installed a new drive specifically for wow. When i am able to play the game, it runs very smooth (about 30 - 35 fps). I am stumped, and would greatly appreciate some advice/tips.

I'm not sure if this is any help, but i viewed one of the error reports after a freeze and it said there were 2 files involved...
