My computer freezes up!


My computer was working fine just at the beginning of last week. By Wednesday of last week I would turn my computer on, it would start up, but when I would try to open any programs my computer would freeze up and I can not do anything, so I would just have to shut my computer off manually. I can not use my computer at all. I have been having the same problem and I don't know why that is.
