    For odd reasons, my computer likes to freeze when I'm doing anything.

    The basic programs that I have running when it freezes:
    Firefox
    iTunes
    Crimson Editor

    I'm using a new eMachines, and it has an AMD 64-bit processer. I have lots of memory too. 512 mb.

    So if anyone knows of any fixes, please let me know. :D

    Sometimes computers like to lock up because of overheating, but that usually happens in games and not with simple stuff like iTunes or Firefox.

    To be on the safe side, you could download Hijack This and upload a log file and have someone who knows what they're doing (I'm staying out of this one lol) have a look at the log for you.

    Download Hijack This from http://www.thespykiller.co.uk/files/HJTSetup.exe
    Save the setup file on your desktop
    Double click on it and by default it should install to C:\Program Files\Hijack This
    Continue through the setup and have it create a desktop icon for you
    Follow all the prompts, click Finish, and have it start Hijack This
    Click the "Do a System Scan and Save a Log File" option
    Save the log file and then it should open with Notepad
    Go to Edit, Select All and then Edit, Paste to paste the contents of the log here
    Make sure you DO NOT fix anything with Hijack This yet. Most of the things in the log are normal or required.

    I am 100% sure it is not spyware or a virus. I'm using SpySweeper and McAfee, which are both up-to-date.
