There are thousands of reasons why that could occur, bad ram, computer overheating (usually shuts down but can freeze), bad processor, bios needs updates, computer needs updates, bad reg settings, hdd/ssd failure, etc etc, the list goes on. The best advice I can give, given you have only gave us one problem (computer freezes) which explains nothing to us, the best advice I can give is take it to a tech to give you a more in depth explanation on why it's happening.

Without a better explanation, other than it just freezes, we won't be able to help much as again it could be a thousand and one things causing it.

Unless you have faulty drivers installed, non of that should be causing your pc to freeze, if you have a FUD virus somehow, someway, that will be your issue as it's destroying your registry etc. Do freezes and such seem to occur more often when playing games? If so, then the issue could be that your ram needs to be replaced, or your processor needs replaced, and or your cpu might just need some new thermal paste applied. If you monitor your cpu usage and such when playing a game and you are throttling at 99/100% usage in the red zone and you freeze sometime after, it means you might need more ram (preferably a decent brand and 8-16gb if not more, self depending, and that you will need some new thermal paste applied), this is me just assuming your cpu is a intel cpu i5 or higher. If you have a amd based cpu and amd based socket, all I can literally say is get a new desktop, I've had nothing but trouble out of amd based cpu's and apu's, the cpu's always die within 1-2 years no matter what I do lol. So I switched to intel. As a last resort the best thing to do to remove it being a hardware problem is to use a diff drive and do a clean os install.

Another thing to note is weirdly freezes can occur if your hdd is very very very low on space (the mb/kb range), it;s best to have 10-20 gb of storage at all times, also do you use integrated graphics, or a graphics card?

Hmm, well one issue is built in graphics, most arent built for gaming lol depending on the pc. Honestly i would just apply new thermal paste, get a new hdd or ssd whichever you use and do a clean os install, and maybe upgrade the ram and see where it goes from there, otherwise just get a new pc. A tec would really be able to tell you your direct issue.
