Welcome to PressF1 Leslie.

A bit more info would be useful, What operating system you're running, your PC specs, what programs (if any) you're running when this is happening.

Is it a wireless keyboard and mouse?

No Speedy, mouse and keyboard have wires that go into the back of the PC

So it's freezing when Internet Explorer (Or your preferred web browser) is open?

Try updating Adobe Flash Player from www.adobe.com

Click on the link that says 'Get Adobe Flash Player'.

check in display propertys to make sure you havent got multiple moniters enabled.

Also check the keyboard and mouse software if your using a fancy one with media keys etc.

wratterus - yes, i only noticed it happen when i am on the internet, i use firefox browser, i downloaded & installed Adobe Flash Player, so see what happens now.

smokey - i had a look a the display properties but can't find were it says multiple moniters option.

DeSade - just using standard mouse & keyboard that windows installed itself.

If it happens again, post a HijackThis (http://www.trendsecure.com/portal/en-US/tools/security_tools/hijackthis) log.
