Acer 3680 with Vista Basic freezes

I have an Acer 3680 with Vista Basic. Recently the computer has been "freezing" and the arrow disappears. I am even unable to open the Task Manager using CTRL+ALT+DEL. The only programs running at the time have been Outlook 2002 and Explorer 7. The hard disc light flashes slowly and regularly.

First thing to try would be to start in safe mode and do an anti virus scan followed by a spyware scan.
Then move on to cleaning your registry with something like ccleaner.
