Does this sound familiar to anyone?

I'm having a problem its just about Everynight while im on my computer around the same time my computer starts to what it seems like, lock up.

For instance I'd be playing a song on iTunes and around that certain time by the next song it stops playing and will not play basically.

I try and access The Volume Control and i get an error, try to open winamp and get a load of errors, my connection litterally freezes which causes 0 transfer, and ontop of all of that my computer starts to lagg!

a Simple Restart fixes the problem Temporarily, but come that same time, the problem still remains...

this is really starting to irritate me and i dont want to have to go through the proccess of backing up and reinstalling Windows and everything else, and I'd really appreciate some help. thanx

I would start looking at

a) heat build up--if your PC is turned on, say after dinner each day and runs constantly for four hours before locking under normal use, the length of time the pc is on could be the cuprit.

b) trojan. You could have a trojan that has turned your PC into a zombie--the hidden program is set to run a series of processes at a given time (phone home, serve files, initiate DoS attack on a server).

check your event viewer for mroe clues.

start > run, type
eventvwr.msc
<enter>

Look under systems and applications for items with red Xs that happened at the SAME time as your problem...list them here.
