Computer What is the main cause of computers freezing?

Answers :

You can use freeram xp pro to manage your RAM since windows doesnt do a great job of freeing ram. you can also like they said try not to run too many programs at once and make sure you dont have a bunch of programs running in your system tray that you don't need
Another way is to go to
\015\012start, run, type in msconfig
\015\012Under startup, uncheck the things you don't need to have running in the background all the time. This will free up a lot of useable RAM.
