Answers :

Without any specific info, I am just guessing that you have a virus or spyware issue. Try restarting in safe mode and run a good virus program, like AVG, or Avast, you can get a free version on the respective websites. Also you should have a good spyware program like adware pro, or Spybot search and destroy, the latter is donation supported shareware that I use on all machines. Run the Spybot search and destroy, first, you can try running that in normal mode first, some of these new variants are tricky and require several trial and error sweeps to remove this new threats. When you get finished, run a defrag, from the system tools. this is going to take you the better part of a day to clear up if it is what I believe it is. Your only other alternative is to do a "restore" to an earlier date, but if your machine is infected, it will just come back as it now has infected the restored backups also, also you will want to check on how many unnecessary programs are running in the background, control, alt, delete. will bring up the task mgr. and you can see what is running in the background. You may want to turn those off.
The computer freezes when it boots?

If so try to download spyware Terminator and Malwarebytes and run a full scan with both programs,
When you go the malwarebytes page download the free trial version. If your computer wont stay running long enough to do this try to boot in safe mode by pressing F8 or F10 before you see the windows loading screen
