    My computer has recently started freezing.

    Its happens at least every five minutes* and lasts from anywhere between 5 and 30 seconds.

    At first I thought it was just my wireless mouse and kb playing up but then I noticed that ad's on websites and such stop playing too.

    I've just done a fresh install and its still happening.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks

    *I had 5 freezes just typing this.
