Default Occasional Freeze?

Hello, for some reason I am not sure sometimes when I go to access something, weather it's looking into my D drive or click windows media player, sometimes as I click an icon or load a programme my pc will freeze then I will have to turn it off and on again, what causes computer freeze? also It only does it at random times I can never tell when it's going to do it. but it doesn't do it that often it just does it occasionaly but it is getting a little more frequent and gettting more irratating. I am running.


Celeron 2.6ghz (crud I know)
Memory: 786 megs
Graphics Card: 9550 ATI Radeon

I just have no idea why?


thanks for reading

sounds just you have a load of crap on your pc including viruses and spyware. just do the usual. get avg, spybot s & d, find a good online scanner such as trend micro, delete stuff you dont need, etc..

Yeah, I highly recommend AVG Antivirus for antivirus protection and Zone Alarm for firewalls.
