  1. Okay, I got a new computer for my graduation, a barebones. Everything ws fine once I got it running for about 3 weeks then all hell broke loose, it would freeze randomly, sometimes even before windows booted up it would have a disk read error, I would restart and it would be fine before it froze again. So my Dad had one of his computer savvy friends set it to defrag everyday, installed a few programs that keep the computer clean like Registry Mechanic and SpeedUpMyPC. It was fine for about 2 weeks.

    After two weeks it would start to freeze RARELY on the desktop and when I was on the net but it seems to MOSTLY freeze whenever I try to play World of Warcraft or Warcraft III which is wierd because it doesnt freeze when I play Halo..

    Any help? Did this make any sense? D:

    Please tell us the hardware specifications of your computer, especially the power supply. We need to know this before we can formulate a solution.
