What OS are you running ?
Have you perchance shut down when Windows was installing updates?

I know nothing about pcs but could it be your anti-virus software?

My PC keeps freezing as well, did it three time the other evening, twice last night & twice tonight.
I have had a computer engineer look at it, cost me an arm & a leg, only for him to tell me that my PC is all OK, & as far as he can see it's only happening on Epz.
Tonight when I want to make a comment or go to another image it's taking all of 20 to 30 seconds.
I'm going to report it once again then I'm shutting epz down for the night.

26 Nov 2008 8:47PM laptop has frozen twice when viewing EPZ in the last few days - it's never done it before, or when viewing any other sites. I have to use the task manager to close the internet.

Not a computer expert but I did have a similar problem a few years back. Is your processor an AMD by any chance? They tend to run a bit hotter than Intel or they used to. My problem was insufficient cooling on the North Bridge, the other chip on the motherboard which has a fan on it. Just a thought?
