Computer Freezes

  mike55 12:33 31 Dec 03

My computer keeps freezing (is it the weather?). If I am using it then it gets slower and slower and finally stops, the HDD red light on the processor unit glows continuously and even Ctrl-Alt-Del has no effect. I have to reset the machine. It looks as if something is hogging more and more of the memory?? if so how could I find out what or can anyone offer any helpful suggestions, preferably practical ones.
Happy New Year to All

Could you please give some information about your computer, OS and any error messages you get because at the moment their is nothing to work with to supply a solution.

Have you cleared all tempory files and defragmented your drive??? if this doesn't work you might have to format and reinstall your OS before you do that check for any viruses first.

Thanks for all the advice. I have increased the memory to 512M and all is well at the moment.
