    mapleboi33,

    I'd try reseating everything. Every plug from your power supply, your RAM, PCI cards, video card, hard drives cables etc. I'd suspect the power supply plug on the motherboard.

    A friend's computer had similar symptoms although that doesn't mean it is the same problem. His computer froze several times a day. It's been OK for six months now.

    Check your BIOS boot order too.

    Try rebooting into "Safe Mode"; Once u had gone into Safe Mode, see if you can do a manual virus scan with your current anti-V, do a FULL scan on dir:C. If you did catch something... 'quarantine' it and report it to this Wilders forum (someone should help you then) for further method of cleaning without destablishing your OS and 'reboot' therafter.

    If you didn't catch any while under Safe Mode, observe if any anomalies exist; Do a 'checkDisk' (aka: chkdsk. On XP, point & right click your dir:C & scroll down to Properties>Tools>Error Checking & tick ON Automatically Fix...) then do a reboot (see if 'freezing' exist thru these process). I would also suggest that you download a light 'on-demand' AV scanner aside from your currently on-board scanner as backup... such as "Multi-VC" (dwnload url is http://www.windowsmarketplace.com/details.aspx?view=info&itemid=2846691)


    Shalom ;)

    Btw... if you didn't catch any virus in 'Safe Mode' and still got those freezes, then it's a totally different ballgame. But situations like yours (recycling boots) usually indicates infections.

    Another test is to remove every PCI card and see if the problem is fixed. Leave the video card of course. I've seen this happen due to a bad firewire card.
