How to stop computer from freezing?

Question

When I on my Windows XP computer, it gets all right until after logging in to any account. Then it starts to lag a lot. A dbl click on any program mtake 5-10 minutes to load. Right clicking takes about 3-5 minutes for the menu to appear. It has never been like this before. It only happenned when I installed a new computer game that i bought. And when i tried to check it using anti-virus program it restarts by itself. Can you help?

The reason your getting this "lag" or freezing is because you have ran out of RAM (memory) This happened after you install the game This game may have used up the memory you had left therefor you will expierience some problems and it will make your pc slow down You should either un-install the game or i suggest upgrading your RAM This will make your computer perform better than what it is now.
