Default Re: freeze up

Either your hard drive is on it's way out or a previous system crash has caused a corrupt file/sector on the hard drive.

Try repairing Windows. This will replace all the files necessary to the OS and should leave your other files intact.

If that fails then a re-install is necessary.

If none of the above work then you may need a new hard drive.
