Why does your computer lock up?

Question

My computer keeps locking up when I go to different websites. I spoke w/a coworker who advised of a possible virus or lack of memory. Well, I did a virus scan on my computer and it was clean..no viruses. I checked the memory and noticed that each time we went to a website, the page was automatically copied and saved to our local drive. The file was labeled something like "copy6" or simply "fffe..."with a code of numbers and letters behind it. Well, I deleated all of those files, which took the better part of a day, and my computer is still locking up. What could be the problem? Do we need to invest in more memory? We have almost 75% available memory. I'm stumped! HHEELLPP!!!!!!!!

Its probably the lack of memory if you deleted some of the stuff you said and its still locking up the memory might be the problem.
