Reasons I have found computer freezeups very persistent are when the CPU or Motherboard are above the normal temperature or your system registry is over sized.

For the first go into the BIOS and check if your CPU temp is above 60degrees Centigrade & if it then you have to install a better Cooler with a faster fan.

second defrag your HDD, optimize your registry using Norton Utilities and set your page file to the optimal sizae preferable on a less used partition.

If it still doesn't solve the problem the check out from where the noise emanates & let me know.
