Did you check event viewer for anything?

Possibility of a hard drive issue.

If you booted it into safe mode and just left it on, would it do the same thing?

a freeze will happen if the computer is overheating, is the fan/heatsink on the processor ok??

Also a faulty disk could be causing this, run a chkdsk to check for errors

Just another possibility...I have had this same problem in the past, and discovered it to be a faulty memory chip. You can use one of the free online memory checkers to validate your memory.
