Hi Mr. Siatkarze,

If this problem persists with your system,it is due to problem in microprocessor or typical thermal failure of the CPU.(if this problem happens with any kind of application.)Please follow the below steps.
1.Shutdown the system and wait for few minutes before switching it on again.If the system boot properly and works for several minutes before hanging,then it is all probability there is a typical thermal failure of the CPU.This often happens due to failure of the cooling fan, or if the CPU is not fitted with proper heat sink, or if there is a gap between the heat sink surface and top of the CPU.
2.Please check whether there is a layer of thermal paste between the CPU top and heat sink base.
3.Please check if any cable is obstructing the path of the CPU cooler fan.
If the problem is not resolved please change you microprocessor with the same family.

Hello there,

It may cause for different causes. It could be a virus problem or a hardware problem. First check your computer if there is any virus or malware is in it or not. If the scan does not get anything then it is a hardware problem. Now switch off the computer and disconnect the power and press the start button for at least 15 seconds. Your computer’s every capacitors would be discharged and now on your computer. Now see very carefully that your hardware’s which part is getting heated early. If you think that anything is unusual you should change that. If that is the processor than change the cooling fan.

Thank you,

First things first: a thorough virus scan. I use Microsoft Security Essentials, because it's free, and known to be very effective. But whatever you have should work. If you can't keep the computer on for long enough for this to finish, you might have to use drastic measures to do a scan…but just do the rest of my recommendations before then.

A few things you could check
1) When it's not frozen, go to task manager (ctrl +alt +del)
2) View CPU and RAM usage in the performance tab, if they are running high constantly I would say it's a background process, possibly a virus.
