Why does my computer freeze while on the net?

Question

MY PROBLEM HAPPENS ONLY WHILE ON THE NET. I WILL CONNECT AND BE ON THE INTERNET FOR ABOUT FIVE MINUTES, AND I WILL TRY TO SCROLL THE PAGE AND THE SCREEN WILL FREEZE. I CANNOT CTRL+ALT+DELETE TO GET OUT AND I HAVE TO REBOOT MANUALLY. THIS PROBLEM HAPPENS EVERYTIME I GET ON THE INTERNET.
