    Resources- Right click my computer>properties>performance tab>system resources. It will go down as you work and fix itself when you do a restart. If the freezing happens after a certain amount of time keep an eye on resources and see if they drop.

    Msconfig will help to account for some of the resources. It is everything you have loading at start-up. It may or may not account for the freeze. Two ways to view it, only one way to copy and paste what you have. To view-start>run>type msconfig>start tab. To copy and paste-start>run>type msinfo32>expand software environment>click start up>edit>select all>edit>copy.


    Do you notice this happening at certain web sites or when you open certain programs?

    It explains it in the first link when you click here in the NEW.net box. Happens to everyone once in a while.
