I don't know for sure, but I experienced something along those lines before and it was a virus/spyware. Just to be safe, do a full system scan for both adware and spyware.

If you don't have any software, google AVG Free Edition (antivirus) and Ad-aware SE (spyware). They are both excellent programs, and they're free.

just some programs freeze or the whole OS? The 1st thing I would suggest is that u run this http://hcidesign.com/memtest/download.html or memtest86 to check that the ram is working fine.
