    You will have to list your system specs piece by piece. Then describe the freezing. Is it at startup? When you open an app? What programs are loaded, etc.

    I think Lithium's procedure was thorough enough...

    Without any info except "freezing" there's nothing we can do except guess wildly. Or suggest the bat method.

    If u have a suck ass computer than it is that but if it is able to support WINBLOWZ then it might be ur proccesor fan it could be dead and over heating the proccesor but it might not.

    I think i know what he mean...i experienced the same problem a while ago....my solution: to upgrade my RAM from 256mb to 512mb. Fixed it perfectly.

    My guess is that you are running 256mb of RAM or less, yes?

    I've never used a bat, though I have kicked in the front of a computer before.
