My computer freezes from time to time

This has only just started to happen and I would like to know if anyone has a solution.

I dont know why it happens . The computer has been on for some time and them suddenly the mouse wont register on screen and/or I cant move the side bar up and down or it wont type a letter etcetc.

It is absolutely infuriating. If anyone can lead me to a solution I would be most grateful.

Thanks chaps and sorry about the delay in acknowledging.
I have tried my AVG and Malwares and they give me a clear reading so no probs there.

The other stuff you gave me means a lot of self diagnosing and that is just what I am not any good at, hence asking you guys in the first place.
I regret to say that I am a "green tinhorn" when it comes to computers and the technical side.

Anyhow thanks for your input , I am grateful nevertheless.
