have you run any antivirus or anti-spyware programs? a good anti-spyware program is AdAware, try running that

Possibilities:

Problem #1:
You have too many programs open, thus they are taking system resources up disabling the next program to load, thus having the computer crash and the screen freeze.

Solution: Upgrading the CPU or

Dynamic RAM.
Types: DIMMs, SIMMs, RIMMs

Problem #2: You have a virus.

Solve #2: Run an Anti-Virus software program, if this anti-virus software program detects things but doesn't later delete, these programs are sometimes known as spyware. Getting a program that deletes spyware become very helpful.

Go to display settings and change your appearance to windows Classic. It will reduce the amount stress put on your system. Try running one program at a time if you have an extremely slow computer. This advice is only good if you have XP.
