    You may have any number of problems. How much RAM does your system have? How many programs are you running at any given time? What is the pagefile setting? Has it ever worked correctly? When did it change? Does your system ever freeze up at any other time? etc. etc. As Johnny 5 said, "Need input, more input."
    :)Give us more information if you would like some help.
