Update your graphics drivers

Thank's Fruit Bat, Should have included more info. Latest drivers from Intel installed, MB Asrock H67M-GE, i5 2400 processor, 4.00 GB ram, 32 bit OS. The Pointer also freezes for a minute and sometimes stays frozen requiring a force shutdown and restart.

FReeezing PC

  1. Overheat due to faulty / blocked fans

  2. PSU voltages

  3. Household power surges fridge etc switching on/off

  4. faulty memory stick try memtest click here virus or spyware scan for both especially if shutting down with in a few minutes of switch on or internet use

  5. driver conflicts especially graphics cards get the latest drivers for your equipment

Thank's all Don't think it is overheat as it occurred just after switch on now as I opened Firefox and Thunderbird, 1 min after switch on froze for 30 sec. I will check the other points

Tried the suggestions to no avail but now I find that when I hover cursor over ENG all is well when I stay on the taskbar but when I move up into the popup window it freezes every time

Latest on this saga is that I installed English (Australian) and uninstalled all others, solved the ENG tag problem but freezing still continued when navigating around Avira toolbox. I uninstalled Avira Security Suite that has been there since Win 7 (was updated to the latest win 10 version before the freezing)and reinstalled on top of Win 10> The freezing appears to have ceased ?
