Hi Phillip
There could be different reasons why your pc would freeze on you.
First off I'm  assuming this is a desktop computer, open the case and blow out all the fans with some canned air and make sure you blow out the psu fan also.

What are you doing when the pc freezes, playing games, surfing, anything you notice that always makes it freeze?

Help me help you Wink

Thanks GeekGirl, I've tried that and no success.  I've also run a program called MightyMax with no success

Please post your hardware specs and what software you've installed lately.

We need to know what mobo you have, how much RAM you have, what type of a graphics card, what soundcard, hard drives, power supply (Wattage), etc.
Another thing that may be helpful in troubleshooting your problem is if you've cleaned the heatsink below your CPU fan.
If it's full of dust/grime, it will be extremely hard for the PC to cool the CPU sufficiently.
