I have a laptop with the same problem, it works with vista. I changed the HD (the old one had not enough space) and installed from zero all programs including Windows. The problem continues, but above all when I'm in a web page which uses Flash Player.


I also opened the computer and check the heat sink (I replaced the silicon grease) and clean everything to discard hardware problems. The freezing it's happening since a month ago or more. I put the HDD in other machine (similar) to discard a hardware failure and the problem continues so it's a software issue. Related with some windows update file or to flash player.


Well after trying many things in my PC I unistalled the antivirus which was Avast and there is no more freezing problems. I installed AVG antivirus and the computer goes well since 5 days ago. Probably this is a solution for my hardware and software configuration. My PC is an HP DV6235CA with Windows Vista Home Premium OS.
